Podcast #80 – Radio & Resistance in the Time of Trump


Radio stations hacked to play “F— Donald Trump” over and over. Concerns that Trump declaring himself a candidate for 2020 already might limit non-comms’ ability to criticize him. And with an Entercom / CBS Radio merger on the horizon, what does this all mean for community radio and podcasting? John Anderson, Assistant Professor of Television and Radio at Brooklyn College, joins to help sort it all out. Jennifer Waits is here, too, along with Paul Riismandel–unfortunately Eric Klein was out sick.

John explains how hackers seized control of all kinds of stations–not just LPFMs as some reports implied–to play the anti-Trump anthem, and gives simple advice about how to prevent that from happening. He also critically assesses how likely the FCC is to be a threat to community radio, and considers what the new Republican majority at the Commission might mean for pirate radio. Plus, he reveals details of a meeting nearly two years ago that he had with FCC staff about dealing with unlicensed broadcasters.

To wrap things up, we have a commentary from Ernesto Aguilar, Membership Program Director for the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, who responds to our discussion about journalism and podcasting in last week’s show (#79).
