The entire history of human expression, slightly abridged
The term “vox pop” comes from the phrase “Vox populi, vox Dei,” which means “The voice of the people [is] the voice of god.” Just so you know what they heck you were doing last week.
The term refers to the brief, man-on-the-street-style piece (it can be video or audio) that features a number of people responding to the same question.
The pieces that came in were overall very good. A few things to keep in mind for vox pop, though.
Keep these suggestions in mind as you move on to making your radio projects. We’ll talk a bit next week about interviewing tips, structuring an audio piece, and editing.
And if you haven’t heard all of the vox pop already, give them a listen! As always, leave your thoughts in the comment area below.
