Carlos Doesn’t Remember Listening Skills ActivityInstead of beginning the podcast with exposition or even music, the podcast begins in media res, which isa term that means “in the middle of things.” What effect does this technique have on the way the listenerexperiences 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 allowthe reader’s mind to be thinking and even subconsciously make connections throughout the podcast. Thereader will essentially be thrown right into the middle of things, which will also keep them listening to getthe full context. Describe the music that is used throughout the podcast.
