Radio is the future

This morning, I went to a studio at Temple University to participate in a live broadcast of Minnesota Public Radio’s MPR News with Kerri Miller. It was super-cool, not least because OMG SOUND STUDIES RADIO DRAMA #AUDIOFUTURISM KISMET. The sound quality was the business. Take a listen! (Link will open an .mp3 if the embedded player below gives you trouble)
