Big Shed: Radio for, by the people

Radio producer Shea Shackelford is an audio zealot. He's done stories for NPR and Public Radio International. He also hosts an independent podcast called Big Shed. It features more experimental kinds of radio than what you usually hear on Morning Edition or All Things Considered. A reminder - podcasts are basically radio shows that you download onto your computer or iPod. Shackelford spoke to a lecture room full of students at SUNY Potsdam a couple weeks ago. His message was simple. Sound is really cool and everyone should grab a microphone and recorder and try their hand at making radio. After the lecture, he and David Sommerstein ducked into a stairwell to escape the rain and chat about why he prefers radio to other media.  Go to full article
