George, Mo, and Erik, KILT-FM, Houston The Louisville Shootings
One of your primary jobs is to make the audience care about you. That’s why great character development is rooted in honesty and vulnerability. You care about people you know and that’s why you reveal who you are to the audience. To bring them closer. There seems to be a mass shooting every week in America. You may opt in on talking about one, but not another. The bank shootings in Louisville last week were especially personal for George, Mo, and Erik, KILT-FM Houston. Instead of this becoming about gun control or mental health, listen to how it’s personalized by George, who couldn’t get a hold of his son when the story broke. His kid worked one block away and was on lock down. It’s one thing to talk about a topic as serious as this. It’s another to personalize it so humanly as is done here. You leave knowing George better and caring about him. Do that with your topics.
