It’s podcast time, folks! We’ve got a handful of audio treats for you today. A literal handful — if you were to somehow put today’s audio in your hand, it would exactly fill it. Try it and see!
But enough science talk. Let’s get down to it. We’re going to start things off with a new installment of The SoCal Byte from producer Nathan Callahan. It’s the “My Chilean Pen Pal” episode, and it’ll hopefully fulfill your Southern California-based radio needs this morning.
And who doesn’t love The Mikie Show, hosted by our pal Mikie? Nobody doesn’t love it, as far as you know. Today Mikie will be doing all kinds of stuff, including chatting with a guy named George. What’s George’s deal? Tune in and find out!
And then we’ll wrap things up with the delightful The Swimming Pool at the Econo-Lodge Was Empty. Dig it!

It’s the kind of rainy morning that makes you want to stay inside and listen to podcasts all day. Luckily for you, we’re providing a brand-new ‘cast to get you started. So we’ll handle the first 41 and a half minutes of your pod-fest, but you’re on your own after that.
Things will kick off with Decode DC, a show we’ve discovered pretty recently. It’s hosted by former NPR Washington reporter Andrea Seabrook, who’s given herself the daunting task of trying to figure out the wacky world of our elected officials.
Then we’ll pop in a new installment of KUT/KUTX’s own Liner Notes, hosted by Rabbi Neil Blumofe. The good Rabbi will be chatting a bit about Benny Goodman. It’s good, man. See what we did there? It’s a pun.
And hows about a little How Sound? It’s the “Curiosity City” edition of the show that gives you the dirt on public radio production.
When we asked prominent Austinites to record the poetry of Kealing Middle School students, most of them jumped at the chance, and even let us film them in the studio while they read. Musicians Dale Watson, Amy Cook, and Maurice Chammah all read some poems, and so did slam poets Zell Miller III and Ebony Stewart. Even Governor Rick Perry joined the fun (but he recorded his poem in his office and we didn’t get him on film). Below is a montage of our volunteer poetry readers interpreting the works of Kealing’s Blank Page students.
We think it’s unfair that you should only get to listen to O’Dark 30 once a week, so we’re doing what we can to change that. But since we’re far too lazy to actually produce more than one of these things a week, we’re using the magic of technology to allow you to listen to the same show twice. Or thrice, even. Heck, you can play this thing all day every day if you want (though we wouldn’t recommend it).
Episode 179 brings you such wondrous audio tidbits as The Symphony of Sirens, Revisited, Decode DC, 99% Invisible, WTF featuring Amy Poehler and, as usual, more.
