September 13, 2018: Inside look at making BirdNote,
the daily radio show about birds.

Kitsap Audubon meets on the second Thursdayfrom 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the Poulsbo Library Community Room, 700 NE Lincoln Rd., Poulsbo WA 98370. For information, contact Gene Bullock at genebullock@comcast.net

Join Jason Saul, managing producer of public radio’s BirdNote, for an in-depth look at how the national daily radio show creates their stories.
BirdNote’s team includes writers, sound designers, narrators, producers - and some of the world’s leading
bird experts. Starting with an introduction to BirdNote and public radio, we’ll discover how producers turn bird ideas into multimedia stories that reach millions of people. We’ll search through the Cornell Lab of
Ornithology’s Macaulay Library to find bird songs, and use professional audio software to combine bird sounds
with other recorded elements to make a final episode. Plus, plenty of opportunities to ask questions!
As BirdNote’s managing producer, Jason oversees and coordinates the many scientists, writers, editors,
photographers and audio and video producers working together to make the show. Prior to coming to
BirdNote, Jason oversaw technology and programming at the New Orleans NPR station, and before that was
a long-time producer on the public radio music and culture program American Routes. Jason and his wife
Dionne moved to Bremerton from New Orleans in 2017 .
