I was on Howard Stern last week...


Or at least I was discussed. Briefly.

Thanks for the heads-up to Rob Corddry and Paul Scheer, and for the audio to Robin Linn

The Public Radio Talk Show Handbook

| 1 comment

The Public Radio Program Directors association has put together a really useful guidebook on how to make a local public radio talk show.

I know, you don't work for a public radio station, and don't aspire to make such a show.

However: I know many of you are podcasters, or are interested in local media. The guide is every bit as useful to you as it would be to a local public radio station.

It covers everything from pre-show prep to hosting to "formatics".

An invaluable tool if you're interested in making high-quality audio.

Brody Stevens


Brody Stevens is a gifted man. I once saw him do an entire set that was basically just him drumming on different stuff, and I've rarely laughed so hard. Sometimes he would point a drumstick at someone and challenge them to fight.

After the jump: "I get lonely. Sometimes I go down to the batting cage. Just to play catch."
