Podcast #56 – From College Radio to Podcasting, Experimenting with the Form

Jennifer Waits brings us a tour of Met Radio at Metropolitan State University of Denver, CO, where the students are trying to embrace the experimental spirit of college radio. Co-host Paul Riismandel delivers a report from friend of the show, Alvaro Burns, in São Bernardo, Brazil, where community radio stations are working together to respond to political challenges in that country and to try to change community radio licensing regulations.

Eric Klein shares his current favorite podcast, the FiveThirtyEight Elections Podcast, which subtly stretches the boundaries of the form, unburdened by some of the assumptions that terrestrial radio broadcasting sometimes inadvertently imposes on podcasting. This sparks a lively discussion about experimentation in radio and podcasting, especially by embracing spontaneity and taking advantage of digital media platforms, from Facebook Live to Snapchat.

To close out the show Jennifer shares an FM bandscan recorded on her journey from Denver to Estes Park, CO.

It’s so much fun to hear another location’s radio dial–we want you to share your bandscan with us! Just use your smartphone to record a scan of your local radio dial, or a radio dial somewhere you’re traveling. Then just email it to us at
