We have renamed our book club feed in the spirit of providing an open platform much like our website, to which people can submit work and “try out” podcast ideas without going thru the rigamarole of setting up their own channel. We are thinking of it as a sort of incubator for eggs like Philthy Talk. If you have an idea for a podcast, send a pilot to email@example.com! And be on the lookout for more stuff from Waste Radio every Wednesday.Read More
