Jennifer, Eric and Paul are back together for a show that spans several continents, from Anaheim to Arkansas, and Ireland to Israel, touching on podcasts, college radio, social media, and more. First Paul has a report from the Now Hear This podcast festival which he worked (and enjoyed) the last weekend of October in Anaheim, California, just blocks from Disneyland. He shares some observations about the development of podcasting as a medium, gleaned from experiencing the fest, as Eric notes that the medium is maturing into its second decade.
Since we recorded on College Radio Day, Jennifer shares the first broadcasts she heard commemorating the day from Greece, Israel and Ireland, even getting a shout-out on air from Galway’s Flirt FM. Then she brings us a tour of KHDX at Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas, revealing some unique aspects that make it stand out even amongst other college stations. And, be sure to keep listening through to the very end to catch a bonus Arkansas FM band scan.
Should we take Radio Survivor on the road for some live podcasting?
We’d like to meet and talk with great radio people and record the podcast live at events like NFCB, GRC, CBI and other regional radio events. Like this idea? What events should we go to? Let us know in the comments, or drop us an email to email@example.com.
Big thanks go to our Patreon supporters who helped fund Jennifer Waits’s travels to Arkansas where she was able to visit stations like KHDX. Support from listeners like you help us produce the program and share stories of community and college radio that would otherwise go unreported.
