Friday Podcast 9/23/11
Hello, interweb friends of ours. We hope you’re enjoying the first day of autumn in a reasonable and prudent fashion. To celebrate the start of fall, we’ve got for you today a podcast that features no mention of the season whatsoever. It does, however, feature our host saying “…none of this is really our fault. It’s your fault!” The fact that we have the kind of relationship where our host can, for no apparent reason, be openly antagonistic toward you, the listening public, is very dear to us. Thank you for sharing that special bond.
So, in addition to that, we’ve also got some independent radio for you. We’ll kick out the jams with a little somethin’ somethin’ from our Canadian friend Sage Tyrtle. This piece is called For a Good Reason, and it’s a really nicely bittersweet story about her childhood. Good public radio stuff right there.
Then we’ve got an episode of The Memory Palace from O’Dark all-star Nate DiMeo. We’ve always loved this cool little series and the way it always teaches us a fascinating and unexpected history lesson. This episode’s called “Six Scenes From the Life of William James Sidis, Wonderful Boy,” and we think you’ll dig it as much as we do.
Then we’ll bring it all home with a piece from the Youth Radio producers. Here at O’Dark, we bring you cool stuff form youth producers whenever we can. It’s always compelling stuff, and Hustlers, Street Vendors, and Farmers is no exception.
