Four people who represent the entire LGBTQ spectrum come together to discuss the It Gets Better project, their own stories and recollections of being bullied, and whether or not audio appeals are as effective when there are no accompanying visual elements. Also, this podcast launches our site: It Better Get Better.
By removing visual counterparts from IGB videos, we were able to study group and individual reactions to sonic appeals. I created this sound collage in the spirit of my Senior Seminar class. Are audio appeals as compelling and effective as their video counterparts? You be the judge.
