On Storybound, Our Radio-Theater Podcast
Storybound is a radio theater program designed for the podcast age. Hosted by Jude Brewer and with original music composed for each episode, the podcast features the voices of today’s literary icons reading their essays, poems, and fiction.
In this episode, Jude Brewer reads his short story “Buzzy,” winner of KCRW’s 2021 Radio Race.
Jude Brewer is a Portland-based writer, audio producer, actor, and host of Storybound. His piece “Buzzy” finished first in KCRW’s 2021 Radio Race. In lieu of voicemails, letters, or other tangible keepsakes, the sound of a skateboard remains Brewer’s only tie to his late childhood best friend and neighbor, Buzzy. Beyond the piece’s beautifully crafted audio design and editing, Brewer wields sound as a character unto itself, taking the listener inside its ability to trigger—and sustain—memories of halcyon days spent perfecting kickflips after school and reveling in the unwritten possibilities and potential of youth.
