Sex, Podcasting, Radio and Eric

Sunday, August 21st, 2005

This show is short on talking and heavier on music because I play one of my favorite tracks by Eric Clapton and it’s pretty long. In this show Sex and Podcasting takes a look at the comparison between radio and podcasting and points out that each medium is better for some things. It’s an audio version of a gizmo I wrote for a friend who is trying to recruit a few community radio producers to consider doing podcasts.

CPB funding cut – a lesson to us all…

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

Yep, well this is kindof a repeat. Probably a theme that will show up over and over. A sub-committee of congress-critters cut CPB's funding this week. See? If you want to be free in your speech, pay attention to where the money is coming from — and don't be surprised if they try to shut you up/off when you say things the money-kids don't like.

Community radio stations are a GREAT place to do community podcasting

Monday, May 16th, 2005

This is the “call to action” podcast for community-radio programmers, producers, staff and boardmembers. I'm lobbying that you folks could be the epicenter of community podcasting if you choose to do so — and I hope you will. This podcast explores a little about why I think that, plus a little about what it will mean.

If you like this podcast, you may want to listen to some of the others which get at narrower topics that you might be interested in. View this as the ravings of an aging community radio organizer, talking about what I'd be doing if I were still at a station.

Audio is a better community medium than video

Sunday, May 8th, 2005

This an old argument, left over from the community radio days. Which is a better community medium, audio or video? I'm on the side of audio. I think it's easier to produce, easier to teach to other people, more involving for the listener and a much better story-telling medium. And “people telling their own stories” is what community media is all about.
