For his third Co-­op, Ishan Allen ’17 delved into the exciting worlds of science and radio by joining the team of Neil deGrasse Tyson and his comedic co­-host at StarTalk Radio. Ishan worked behind the scenes managing several projects, one of which was the StarTalk SoundCloud account. He was tasked with transforming full length, hour radio episodes into digestible and intriguing sound bites or clips ranging in length from 1 ­- 5 minutes. Through his work with StarTalk Radio, Ishan was able to improve his “audio editing skills and artistry.” While attending an event called StarTalk Live!, Ishan participated in meet and greet tours and even had the pleasure of meeting Bill Nye the Science Guy! You can check out some of Ishan’s work with SoundBites and a series called Cosmic Minutes below:
