Rashomon Season 2: Call For Families
Rashomon is a long form narrative storytelling podcast that launched in March 2018. Each episode features one family telling every side of the same story. If you have yet to listen to the podcast, you can do so here.
We are currently looking for families with stories to feature in Season 2 of the podcast. Below is a list of themes and family concepts that we are exploring. If any of these themes spark a story for you, and you (as well as your family members) are interested in being interviewed, fill out the form below.
A few extra notes:
You and your family members must be available for interviews between November 2018 and February 2019. Each family member will be interviewed separately.
We are looking for all types of families. We are actively seeking stories told from the perspectives of underrepresented voices and underrepresented family structures.
Themes that are are exploring in Season 2:
The secret lives of mothers and daughters
I never told you this but…
Before daughter/ After daughter
During mother / After mother
Family life in Japan (traditional vs. modern)
An unexpected family (e.g. change of structure, merge, reconfiguration, forced family)
An event where all perspectives differ to an astonishing degree.
Tragedy brings family closer together
Comedy brings family closer together
Small families / Big families
Road trip stories
Family secrets (e.g. shameful. serious, recipes, tools/tricks of the trade)
