As I am listening to “The Lady Vanishes,” I notice how the music is not constant and that it changes from section to section. I think they do this to help keep this story from sounding static and stale. It helps set the mood and creates interest. It also helps to keep interest when they interject “crowd” sounds into the story.

“Don’t hate the Player” also included sound clips from the actual episode which helps to transport you to that event through audio. They also included interviews which deepens the story. The narrator describes what is happening(facial expressions, etc.) while the sound clip from the episode is playing in the background. The interview also was talking about how the she was unable to stop the show because the contestant wasn’t breaking any rules while the audio clip of him winning was playing. This podcast did a very good job of audio storytelling.
