Carlos Doesn’t Remember Listening Skills Activity Instead of beginning the podcast with exposition or even music, the podcast begins in media res, which is a term that means “in the middle of things.” What effect does this technique have on the way the listener experiences the story? The effect this technique has on the way the listener experiences the story is that it works as a type of “hook” to get the reader’s attention. It also merely prefaces what the podcast will be about, and will allow the reader’s mind to be thinking and even subconsciously make connections throughout the podcast. The reader will essentially be thrown right into the middle of things, which will also keep them listening to get the full context. Describe the music that is used throughout the podcast. How does Gladwell use it as a tool to help tell his story? Throughout the podcast, the music is used to either emphasize important phrases, or used to transition from one idea to the next.
