Step 1: Consider the scenario:
You are the primary contributor for Low Cost Foodies, a nationally syndicated podcast specializing in the current affairs of the fast food industry. Listeners value the Low Cost Foodies for their insider knowledge and lighthearted banter. Your writing partners are out reporting for an upcoming episode and will not be able to help in the scripting process this week. Accordingly, you have been tasked with managing the entire script of this week’s podcast on the premises and hidden premises in the fast food industry.
Step 2: Review assignment requirements.
Introduce the Low Cost Foodies audience to the concepts of premise and hidden premise. These can be found everywhere in the fast food industry, but it takes some understanding and careful attention to identify them. In a two-page (500-word) podcast script, composed of two separate segments, explore the notions of premise. In Segment 1, “Spot the Premise,” identify the premise (or hidden premise) of each conclusion provided below. This information will be useful for Segment 2, “Defending the Premises,” in which you provide a more in-depth analysis into the aforementioned conclusions.
Podcast Segment 1: Spot the Premise
Podcast Segment 2: Defending the Premises

They should be excited to hear your podcast material. Follow these guidelines to further engage the listening audience:
Step 4: When you have completed your assignment, save a copy for yourself in an easily accessible place.
