PodFest Berlin Seminar: Podcasting in the New Cave
Sunday, October 24, 2021 | 2:00pm – 3:00pm
“Podcasting in the New Cave – Tapping into the Primeval Power of Storytelling”
Presented by Benjamin Lorch of The Berlin School of Podcasting
In days of yore we sat in circles around fire to tell our stories.
But today we do not live in dirty caves any more! Or, do we?
Podcasting is now among us in this new age of the ear. So much has changed but the core tenants of storytelling remain the same. In this modern cave talk we explore the powerful role of the storyteller no mater whether they sit — whether under the stars, behind a microphone or right there in that strange and special space between your headphones. Plato, Marshall McLuhan and Judith Butler will be summoned into our midst. Join us in the circle, around the fire for a story or two.
Benjamin Lorch is a professional podcaster-educator and the founder of The Berlin School of Podcasting. Ben came of age in Chicago, fountainhead of podcasting and improvisational comedy. Raised on radio and perpetually listening, he knows that stories can change the world.
How we’re keeping you, our staff and our performers safe:
- We have a brand-new state-of-the-art ventilation system AND air conditioning system with anti-viral plasma filters in our theatre!
- FFP2 or OP masks are required at all times throughout the venue, including the theatre (except for that brief moment when you are taking a sip of a delicious beverage or a bite of a tasty sandwich)
- Everyone will need to follow the “3G” rule and show proof of one of the following:
- Getestet – Proof of a negative Rapid Antigen Test (Antigenschnelltest) or PCR Test not older than 24 hours
- Geimpft – Proof of full vaccination. Your last dose must have been administered at least 14 days prior
- Genesen – Proof of recovery from COVID-19, at least 28 days old but not older than 6 months
- Failure to provide one of the above will result in denial of admission to the theatre!
- The entire venue is cleaned regularly and frequent touchpoints sanitized before and after each show. Hand sanitizer will be available all over the place.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, seating is limited.
These guidelines will be updated as restrictions change.
