On the up side, I have met many helpful people in Zambia who are eager to support my story. I have sat down with already over 25 people for preliminary interviews. The University Teaching Hospital has welcomed me with open arms for observation and I am scheduled to begin filming after the approval of my ethics proposal hopefully sometime in November.
I am also very involved with US Embassy events dealing with digital storytelling education. My first lecture was last week to about 45 people. I am looking forward to series that I am building around a brand new genre with a new curriculum in support of documentary storytelling though podcasts.
