URBAN GAMING SHOWCASE ON FULL CIRCLE
Urban games are taking over! In this hour of radio programing, I explore the importance of play in our everyday lives. This show features a piece about San Francisco’s mysterious Jejune Institute, a sound collage about Dodgeball in San Jose brought to you by the World Dodgeball Society, a vox pop about play from 4 Square of the East Bay, sounds from San Francisco Bike Polo and a conversation with gamers from Urban Capture the Flag, Mosswood Kickball, Underground Dodgeball and 4 Square of the East Bay. Take a listen and have some fun! The audio below is the entire show.
THE JEJUNE INSTITUTE
I took my cousin and her husband on a mystery trip to San Francisco. They only knew that they were going to be inducted into the “Jejune Institute.” I followed them around the city as they discovered just what that meant.
WHY IS PLAY IMPORTANT?
Why is play important? Adults playing 4 Square in a parking lot in Oakland have the answer.
DODGEBALL RULES AND ADVICE
The World Dodgeball Society is a dodgeball league for adults that started in LA and has spread across the country. I attended the first WDS game in Northern California, specifically in San Jose. This piece outlines the rules and gives listeners some dodgeball advice from experts.
SOUNDS FROM SF BIKE POLO
To close out the show, I put together some sounds from the vibrant scene of San Francisco Bike Polo. Bike Polo is polo on bikes (exactly like it sounds) and is huge with players around the country and the world. Enjoy and remember to wear a helmet.
