Animation X Podcasts

Join us in watching our favorite podcasts.

Animation students from the Museum School at Tufts University teamed up with PRX to create trailers for upcoming podcast episodes from Radiotopia. Using a variety of techniques, from hand-drawn to digital, these students transformed the classroom into an animation studio. 

We will watch trailers for podcasts that resonated most with these students, including:

  • The Heart: Kaitlin Prest; animation by Beckett Reed with drawings by Çağil Harmandir
  • Criminal: Phoebe Judge and Lauren Spohrer; animation by Yu Jian and Ching-Sheng Lai
  • 99% Invisible: Roman Mars, animation by Sena Burns
  • The Bugle: Andy Zaltzman, animation by Noah Sawyer
  • Strangers: Lea Thau, animation by Bella Kiser

The collaboration was the brainchild of SMFA Animation Professor Maya Erdelyi and PRX's Audrey Mardavich who thought it would be fun to pair podcasts and animation.
