While working 25 hours a week producing and editing traffic reports for the United States Traffic Network, working as a bar back for the largest bar on Temple University's campus 25 hours a week, and finishing my degree - I wrote and organized a collection of works titled "Life of a Giant."
"Life of a Giant" is a book of poetry, narrative, and essays detailing the most significant aspects of my life. From mental illness to dating then a sharp turn into some international politics, philosophy, and poetry.
This book is an accurate representation of who I am and how I think when I am at my worst. It's honest, it's silly, it's sad and it's my story.
I wrote this book to showcase my writing ability, to tell my story, and to make other people feel normal. It is my honest opinion that to live a full life means to see and say as much as you can. If my thoughts live on and generate change or an idea, that is all I can ask for. I will write for the rest of my life regardless of how many people are reading.
Starting in 2013, I periodically wrote sports articles for for numerous outlets, including Top Sports Report, Legion Hoops, Yardbarker, Pattison Ave, and many more. The majority of which have been erased from the internet as domain names shifted and as people lost touch.
I have received press credentials and have worked with the following companies: Philadelphia Flyers, Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Temple Owls, Marist Red Foxes, British Independent Film Awards, Live Nation, and the Philadelphia Theater Company.
The majority of the writing I had done had been free of charge, but in 2017 I signed a Freelance Contract with Time Out - North America.
I was published in Time Out Philadelphia's Third Edition hard copy and have been regularly writing web content covering events and activities throughout the Philadelphia area.
"2100" is a podcast series currently being produced. It is a highly produced series of audio clips, music, commentary and interviews that asks of a new topic, "what is the future of (topic) in the year 2100?"
The idea stems from how poorly humans perceive themselves in real time and misjudge their actions affect on the future. In this series, I (Jason Peters) interview professors, professionals, strangers, friends, and everything in between to gather an idea of how the present sees itself, how the present sees the future, and how people really feel about the time they are living in.
We charted! In May & June 2100 got as high as #5 on the UK iTunes Comedy Podcast charts & #147 in the American iTunes Top 200.
and all the other places.
Long Gone was a podcast that I had recorded and produced while traveling the UK. The production methods range from diary like monologues to interviews to conversations and game. Half of the episodes come from a radio show titled "Across the Pond" that aired on ICRadio.com at Imperial College in South Kensington.
Rightfully Wrong was an hourly radio show styled in a variety format depending on the guests. Episodes featured musicians, athletes, and comedians and aired on 90.3 WESS from 2013 to 2015. The show featured scripted segments, interviews, and games; including the shows signature game "Rite or Wrong."
