Tuesday Podcast 11/1/11
Here at the O’Dark offices, we’re still removing our Halloween zombie makeup and trying to get over our candy hangovers. But that won’t keep us from bringing you a brand new podcast. We’ll start November off with a bang in the form of this 75 minute podcast goliath, featuring old friends, new friends, and anyone who will agree to be on this thing.
First off, it’s In Desperation, Seafood Workers Sign Away Their Rights, which will take you down to the Gulf Coast for the first of an ongoing series about the aftereffects of the BP oil leak. We’ll be bringing you more of that series in the weeks ahead.
Then it’s a visit from our old buddy Graham Shelby, a large man from Kentucky. Graham’s interviewing fellow storyteller Fred Newman in a piece accurately titled Interview with Fred Newman.
We’ll also bring you La Llorona: An Evolving Myth, which looks at a centuries-old story from Mexico and the American southwest.
Then it’s Ode to the Pencil, from new friend Afi Scruggs. Afi’s a writer, and though she’s not technology-averse, she does hold a special place in her heart for the humble pencil.
Last but not least, it’s Austin’s own Abigail Mahnke of KOOP’s Innerviews program. Abigail always finds interesting people to talk to, and for this one, she didn’t have to look too far. It’s an interview with Abigail’s husband Tom, about his one-time run in with a serial killer.
