People today spend up to 319.2 minutes on television everyday! The television has dramatically changed since its invention in the 1920's, the first commercials were aired in 1940, and the television has played a pivotal role in human society.
Finally, I would like to look at a podcast called Serial. The first season of Serial follows the murder of a high school senior Hae Min Lee in 1999. After searching for six weeks, her body is found buried in the local park. Her ex-boyfriend, Adnan, is arrested and charged with her murder. However, Sarah Koenig, host of Serial, believes there is something fishy about the case from the start. In twelve episodes, Koenig breaks down the entire case, looking at how the prosecution and the defense built their arguments, and what they left out. While Adnan claims his innocence, as does Steven Avery, Adnan does not claim police corruption as his reason. Koenig, rather, feels that it wasn’t doing of the police, but of all of the suspects and witnesses

Kim Kardashian is speaking out about the possibility of Kanye West running for president in 2020. When Kanye made the announcement, nobody was sure if Kim’s husband was telling the truth, but it is coming out now that he really does plan to do it. Kim Kardashian sat down with Ellen DeGeneres and shared that Kanye never even told her that he was going to announce this at the 2015 VMAs.

One of the big commercials played on the radio was implemented just for men. This product was called Bryl Cream. Bryl Cream was a cream for men hair. It helped lay the hair down. Another commercial was Ready Kilowatt, this was advertisement for lightbulbs. There was no real public concerns for commercial. This was just how people communicated back in the early 1950-1960’s. Most of the information transferred from the radio was news, songs, sales, television shows and weather. Another program to remember was an educational radio program. This was the only educational program on the radio. It was done by high school students and they would compete with different schools. Student would answering question on air and the one with the most points would win. Radio had some good and bad qualities. While it was entertainment, it did have a tency to lose connection a lot. There were some technical problems with radio programs, mostly with the antenna’s use to get a clear connection for listening on certain stations. It would have a lot if static, most of the time he said “people had to add alumni foil to the antenna to get a clear reception.” The memories were good, because this was when families and friends gather the most. Eddie’s one memory was from Christmas, he said, “they always got round the radio and listen to music and holiday programs together.” This all changed when FM radio became available there was more programs and people was able to listen
For starters, Donald Glover, A.K.A "Childish Gambino" is a man of many talents. Not only did he perform an incredible set, he kept the audience laughing and on their feet the whole show. While the anxious fans were waiting patiently, his DJ played tracks ranging from N.W.A to J. Cole, preparing people for what was to come. When Gambino ran on stage, the melody of his song "Fireflies" started- only for him to exclaim "this is NOT a good song to start a show. Turn it off!" Caught by surprise, the audience cheered while he brought 2 Chainz onto the stage. With perfect transition, they both filled the speakers with a hyped rendition of "No Lie." The energy in the venue peaked, and Gambino followed his surprise guest appearance with his three
In the article “The Backlash Against Serial -and Why It’s Wrong”, written by Conor Friedersdorf. The article is a discussion about the podcast Serial and whether it was right for the producer, Sarah Koenig, to report on a the case. Friedersdorf brings another viewpoint, given by Jay Caspian Kang. Friedersdorf does bring in other articles to challenge both Koenig’s and Kang’s thoughts on the podcast’s production and script. Kang challenged Koenig’s credibility to report on cultures she does not understand due to her whiteness. Friedersdorf goes back and forward on this idea throughout the article.

“Welcome to Eagle Radio” came echoing out of the phone from a syrupy sweet feminine toned voice. That was it, the phone call I had been waiting for. I had gotten the job! Wow, I’m going to be a star! I thought as I hung up the phone with images of the glitz and glam of Johnny Dare, Wolfman Jack, Casey Kasem, and Delilah running wild through my mind. I was to come dressed to impress the following morning for a tour and to fill out the official documentation. The happy dance ensued.
The podcast that I have chosen is episode 5 with Amanda Denes. Denes is an interpersonal communication researcher who has focused much of her research on topics around the communication of sex. This podcast focuses on the communication of pick up artists and the communication aspects of pillow talk. Denes discusses the methodology of pick up artists and her analysis of forums on pick up artistry as well as the book The Mystery Method. She talks about the dangers of the ideas that are being expressed in these forums and in this book because they go past just the art of seduction and at points blur the line of consent. Denes also delves into the effects pillow talk has on different stages of relationships in this podcast. So often the only parts
The episode that I listened to was Episode 187 "Sugar Rush". I watched a few other episodes but I kept coming back to this one in particular for it was the most random yet somewhat all tied together. What made me click on this episode was the picture of Nancy Sinatra which I 'm familiar with and I love her song "Summer Wine". The theme of the show was "Sugar Rush" and many of the songs I was familiar with so it peaked my interest. The episode opens up with my favorite Disney movie "Mary Poppins" and Julie Andrew 's singing "Spoon full of Sugar". The sugar songs ended with one of the hosts stating that "a person consumes 158 lbs of sugar each year", but it goes on to show a fun 'Frosted Flakes ' commercial. Then Maynard says, "1/3 of U.S.
Cigarette Ads is something that can't go unseen. It is everywhere and now it is on every commercial. They use teenagers to young adult now in the commercials. They trying to tell the young people to stop smoking, it can lose your life. When it comes to the ethnic group, they have equal amounts of both races on the commercial. Recently, they had a commercial where the cigarette comes to a nasty type of creature, and it makes the boy quit. This represents that the cigarette can make you do some crazy things and you it can kill you. Cigarette ads such as the older people are sick and can't do things because they smoke in the past, it prevent them from not having a life. They want the people to understand that if you keep on the path of smoking
‘Discourse analysis interfaces with the analysis of grammar and the analysis of social activity.’ (Martin, 2007, p.4) In this paper, the context of the transcript would be analyzed by examining the linguistic grammatical features found in the transcript with the aim of finding the social context, which could affect the lexical choices.
Since this first televised ad that only a few thousand people watched, companies like Apple have invested hundred of millions of dollars into television advertisements. A product of this investment can be seen here. In this ad, James Corden, a popular late night show host, is shown pitching ideas for a commercial to Apple Music executives in a business meeting. The executives respond to Corden by stating that they essentially want an ad that shows how simple it is to use Apple Music (while showing this with an iPad) and it can be used offline, on a plane, or a car. This can be considered a logical appeal as it is indirectly giving consumers the features of Apple Music as a reason for joining Apple Music. Furthermore, Corden gives the advertisement an ethical appeal. Corden is a popular for his show, The Late Late Show, however, he has gone viral for his Carpool Karaoke videos. In these videos, Corden drives around popular artists like Bruno Mars, Mariah Carey, and
