  • AI Transcription
  • Clip extraction
  • Drag and drop script writing

Radio field work is fun, but writing the script can be pretty tedious. Transcribe, or at least log your audio. Read through it and identify the best clips. Try and figure out which clips go where. Write your script around it. Go back to your log and to find the time codes. Go back to the audio and extract it, hoping you logged it correctly. Discover you missed something... Repeat.

Gloss streamlines this process in one drag and drop interface. Upload your audio. Let the AI transcribe it. Mark your clips. Drag them into your outline. Add voice tracks. Press a button and done.

Gloss is in Beta. I'm testing it on a multi-episode story of escaping a killer in rural Mexico. If you want to test it on your project, please get in touch: cwzorro@fastmail.fm.


I'm a journalist, producer, instructor and developer. I've reported from a minefield and a dugout canoe, taught radio journalism, robotics, and anthropology in board rooms, lecture halls and mud huts, led award-winning media projects, and mentored dozens of journalists in Canada and Latin America. Today, I write about climate change and develop an app to learn English while you run.

Digital storytelling

Working with Conrad brought out the best in me. He's very patient and very professional. He's really passionate about radio and he's always ready to venture into dangerous territory to get information that will make his story clear to his listeners.
