Tuesday Podcast 9/20/11
Welcome to O’Dark 30′s last podcast of the summer! Autumn officially starts this Friday, so this is your last chance to soak up the summer sun whilst listening to your favorite radio show in pod form. To celebrate the end of summer, we’re not just offering you a slice of radio pie to shove on your ipod; we’re also offering you a last-minute summer vacation getaway, completely free of charge! And also completely free of actual travel!
We’ve got “Vacation Getaway Special” from the fine folks at World Vision Report for you today, which is the independent radio equivalent of an around-the-world trip, sort of. You’ll go to Nepal and meet a street vendor who sells an exotic musical instrument; you’ll hear about an art exhibit of robots made by farmers in Shanghai; you’ll learn about the industry of “poverty tourism”; and more.
Upon returning home, your voyage will move off-world as you explore the strange planet that is home to The Mikie Show. What sort of oddness does Mikie have in store for you today? We don’t want to ruin all the surprises, but there is a visit to Mikie’s favorite toy store involved. Enjoy!
