Task: With a partner (assigned by your instructor), write a summary-response essay using one of the podcasts posted on the website below.

To prepare:

Choose a podcast from this website:


  1. Listen to the podcast and take notes
  2. Write a 150-200 word summary
  3. Write a 300-400 word response

The summary: (150-200 words – 1 paragraph ONLY)

  1. The first sentence should include the speaker, title, year of publication, and main idea (thesis) of the speaker.
  2. It should cover all the main points discussed in the podcast.
  3. It should include the speaker’s conclusion.
  4. It should not include any of your own opinion (just present the facts).

The response: (300-400 words – 3-4 paragraphs)

The response MUST demonstrate your opinion and should have 2 sections:

  1. Analysis (You MUST answer all of these questions in 1 paragraph)
  1. What is the author’s purpose for speaking (inform, persuade, recommend, etc.)?
  2. Who do you believe the author’s target audience is?
  3. What are the author’s supporting points?
    1. Do they directly support the main idea?
    1. Are they based on research; or are they simply someone’s opinion?
  4. Briefly discuss the research methodology (Did they only do research by referring to other articles or did they do their own experiments?)
  • Relevance + Applicability (This section should be LONGER than the Analysis section)
  1. Is the author’s talk effective? Why or why not?
  2. Do you agree with the author’s conclusions? Why or why not?
  3. What implications (resulting effects) do the main points and conclusions present to the scientific (or other) community, people, environment, etc.?
  4. How could you use the author’s findings in your future studies?
  5. Can you apply the findings to your own life? If so, how? If not, why not?
