I think a podcast on Stabilizing Rent is a very good activist project. In the first section I was looking for you to focus specifically on the project that you'll be completing this semester. As I read your proposal it seems to me that what you'll be able to complete this term is the pilot episode. Am I correct? I see how you want this to become episodic, which makes sense given all the topics that should be covered, but the one project is the pilot where you set up the series. Do I have that right?
If that is so, as you refine your work, I'd do so with one episode in mind. When you do your pitch you might consider giving us the big picture idea (the series and why), then focus on just the first episode, giving specifics and a sense of the tone, the elements included in that episode, and other focused aspects of that first episode, including who will be interviewed, what sounds will be included, etc. Also tell us about how you'd like to make it available, and who the audience.
