This episode is a must-listen for podcast producers, anyone thinking of launching a podcast, or folks who just plain love podcasts. Julie Sabatier is a radio and podcast producer who recently decided to retire her successful and beloved podcast Rendered. Julie shares her nine-year journey into independent podcast production, and the many lessons she learned along the way. You’ll learn the upsides and downsides of crowd-funding a show, the benefits of being on the actual radio, and why even the Portland airport carpet couldn’t make the show more sustainable.
On College Radio Watch Jennifer Waits shares her audio tour of Evergreen State College’s KAOS. For his Lasar’s Letter on Radio, Matthew shares reflections on the 76th anniversary of Paul Robeson singing the cantata “Ballad for Americans” on CBS radio, exploring the complicated global politics surrounding the piece.
