Hi all. Apparently the excellent public radio program re:sound chose to air Episode 48: Florida Recount Poker this week on their show. We knew this was coming up, but didn't know it was this week, so it was exciting to get mail from new listeners today. Thanks Roman, Gwen, and everyone over there! I haven't listened yet, but I was reviewing the line-up. Some really great stuff.
The first piece in the line-up was from Sue Mell, who contributed to CoS back in Decemeber with Episode 54: Behind the Phone Books. Re:sound broadcast Sue's first episode from her own podcast Unintended Detours, which I'm sure is going to be great!
Next up is my neighbor, Benjamin Walker, radio auteur. I've never met the guy, but he assured me we'd grab coffee sometime soon. That was four months ago. That aside, I LOVE his podcast, Theory of Everything. Amongst the best out there. Check it out.
I don't know Llyod Broadnax King of The Obscure News, but it sounds cool...
I recently discovered Matt Sahr's Tin Man through Third Coast's Featurecast. It is really really cool stuff. He's translating some concepts of classical clown work to podcast form. He has developed some very intriguing characters that exist in a very bizarre fantasy world. I must admit, I was a bit put off by his indelicate and unsubtle anti-corporate message, which he slips in outside the stories/skits/soundscapes as fake "commercials," but they hardly detract from the beauty of the surreal and refined facets of his work.
They finished the bunch with us. It sounds like a good listen. I listen to Re:sound every week as a podcast, but I don't think they podcast their most recent episodes. I think the way in which they choose their podcast schedule is a bit haphazard, so I have no idea when this episode will show up in my iTunes, but you can stream it online here. I know I will before the weekend's out.
