Tuesday Podcast 11/6/12
Well, here it is, election day already. Seems like we just started talking about the 2012 presidential election in 2009 or so, and then, bam, suddenly, after a few years, the big day is here!
We here at O’Dark aren’t part of KUT’s fine newsroom, and we’re not the observant or that bright, so we’re only vaguely aware of what’s going on. I know there’s that one guy who’s already president and he wants to be president again, or to keep presidenting, I guess. Then there’s some other guy who’s all like, “No! I wanna do it! Let me!” Maybe I should go over to Ben Philpott’s cubicle and ask him what’s going on. That guy usually knows about politics and stuff.
Anyway, I don’t really know what all this biz means, but I do know that it’s election day, and that’s some kind of big deal, so I’ve selected some election-related pieces to include on today’s big ‘cast. There’s a little show out there in radioland called The Contenders, which is all about the fascinating folks who have run for president over the years. We’ve got two installments of that series for you today, “Shirley Chisolm” and “William Jennings Bryan.”
And that’s not all! We’ll also bring you some leftover Halloween candy in audio form, with three installments of the bite-size spookiness that is Halloween Haunts.
