Podcast 85 - CPB fading

Podcast #85 – Dreaming of a Better CPB



The president’s proposed budget would eliminate funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting by 2018. Radio Survivor’s own Matthew Lasar joins to help us put this attack on public broadcasting in historical perspective. He analyzes the inherent weakness in the design of the CPB and proposes ways in which the system could be both stronger and more independent.

Matthew also shares a couple of community radio nuggets he’s recently uncovered in the Internet Archive, including a bygone cable-radio station from Bloomington, Indiana, and late night broadcasts from Wichita, Kansas.


Please help us our work in providing community radio and podcasting coverage seen nowhere else. If we don’t do it, it won’t get done.
