Description: Podcast series, digital video, and poem written by Tara Vasanth, William & Mary Art History major with emphasis on Built Environment, and member of the class of 2023. Vasanth described the submissions: “To celebrate a wonderful freshman year and to remember all of the fun times I spent with my amazing hall mates, I made an illustrated, limericky video for my hall (Spotswood, Second Lower Floor). Since we all live in the Botetourt complex, we proudly call ourselves the "Botehotties." I wanted to create a story-telling video (similar to the ones you see on Reading Rainbow) that captured the wonderful experiences and uniqueness of our special dorm. It was a great distraction from exam preparation, and this project definitely took precedence over my studying.” Podcasts were co-created with Vasanth’s friend, Maddy: “Inspired by the fascinating and funny conversations my friend Maddy and I had prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, we decided to create a quirky podcast that revisited some of the things we talked about during the school year. Despite my minimal podcast knowledge and experience, I was keen to co-create a podcast that allowed me to continue to connect with Maddy and my hall mates. In the show, we are committed to wacky humor and giving a ridiculous amount of attention to trivial, nonsensical, irrelevant aspects of daily living. Hence the name, Foofaraw. Warning: some of the conversations you will hear are parallel to those that take place in a dorm room between the hours of 1:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. I am so happy that I am a part of this ongoing project, and am very thankful to Maddy, our small base of listeners, and to the College for making this show possible.” Included is a personal photograph of Vasanth, included with the submission.
