Do You Queer What I Queer?: Recording, Telling, and Archiving an Ethnographic Podcast

Join Elliott Tilleczek (PhD Student, Anthropology) and Thomas Stoneman (Youth Educator) on Wednesday, November 4th as they discuss the various methods and types of work that go into creating their podcast Do You Queer What I Queer? In addition to speaking about the podcast, Elliott and Thom will host a workshop and show in real-time what is involved in the process of recording, hosting, and archiving a podcast episode. 

Do You Queer What I Queer? (DYQWIQ) is an independently run project that seeks to document queer life stories, cover queer news, and explore queer histories. Since the release of its first episode in October of 2017, DYQWIQ has learned alongside 74 guests and released 100 episodes. In its 4th season, DYQWIQ asked guests about their ideal queer future and is now moving to explore queer histories through the upcoming 5th season. As a passion project, Elliott and Thom want the podcast to remain fluid in certain ways and open to new iterations and experimentations. Originally imagined as a hub for ‘community and conversations’, the show started as a way for the hosts to try and connect with a larger queer community. DYQWIQ always tries to balance storytelling, (sometimes painful) honesty, and humour in the face of adversity. 

In this talk/workshop, Elliott and Thom will discuss what they have learned about sustaining a passion project, discuss what it has meant to them to learn alongside so many wonderful guests, and share technological expertise gained through 3 years of trial and error. By sharing their computer screen and recording an episode of Do You Queer What I Queer?, Elliott and Thom will invite attendees to follow along the process of creating a podcast episode.
