Culture Connection

 Culture Connection is a 3 minute, recorded-live feature that runs on Evolution 107.9, which is BCIT’s very own radio station. The feature is a interview, which is spliced into bits that are played between voiceovers. The point of it is to touch a culture and explore that culture. It’s always best to try to explore cultures people have never heard of. For one, people are probably more likely to do an interview because it’s a way of getting their story out, and two, people will more likely tune in and be interested. All you need is a topic, a story behind it, and a guest who’s credible. You can’t just grab some random person. They have to be closely associated with that culture. The aim is to make an episode as engaging as possible. You literally only have 10 seconds to capture your audience. So, you have to write a captivating intro that will engage your listener.  All episodes of Culture Connection are produced at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) at the Burnaby campus by the Radio Arts and Entertainment students
