About Michael Epstein

Michael Epstein is an immersive media producer at Walking Cinema and professor at the California College of Arts. He is developing what he calls Expandable Audio Journalism (EAJ), a platform for producing audio stories that can expand or contract based on a person’s interest level. Listeners tell their smart speaker they want to hear more at a certain point in the story or respond to an Alexa voice prompt and the story naturally expands to give them more detail. Epstein will work with a news outlet to produce an expandable audio story and build tools that newsrooms can use to create EAJ content for a range of smart speakers.
