From Our Soundbooth | March 24, 2022

Hello and welcome to Miller Aud-cast, the Missouri Review podcast where we listen to and discuss the finalists for the 2021 Miller Audio Prize. Thank you for being here, wherever here is, for episode 51, featuring the latest finalist for the 2021 Miller Audio Prize in Audio Documentary, “Behind the Curtain: The War for the West,” from Jacqueline Guzda.

Jackie Guzda is an Associate Professor at Western Connecticut State University where she creates Behind the Curtain, an investigative documentary podcast about current and political events. BTC began as a political comedy podcast, evolved into an interview format and finally in its current form. It will someday return to its roots but for now Jackie serves as host of Lifelong Learners, a vlog/podcast in which she interviews amazing movers and shakers in the Educational Technology world.
