Episode 9: Back Into the Loving Arms of Meat

For all of you recovering vegetarians out there pecking away at organic, grain-fed, ethically raised chicken – this podcast will help explore some issues that might be on your mind. Issues like “how do I shop at a meat counter without embarrassing myself?” and “Which type of sausage is best for snacking?” and “What does it feel like when a butcher is nailed in the back with a giant pork loin?”

Warning to the faint of ear – I did visit a butcher shop for this one, resulting in some intense sawing and grinding noises. They’re kind of gross.

Tin Can Radio

Long time no see! This is a special episode resulting from an experiment, in which I built a radio transmitter. With the help of the Tin Can Studio in Vancouver, we arranged for 3 full days of radio mayhem, driving around in an Airstream trailer and broadcasting to whoever lay within a 5-block radius. The sounds below are the live raw files from our broadcast. Beware – it’s a different style of radio than my normal podcasts, as we threw the fancy production out the window in favour of spontaneous live energy.

The first link is the archive from host Matty Harris, featuring live noise performances, and interviews on the topic of “How Radio Changed My Life.” Matty is one of my favorite campus/community radio hosts.

The second link is from the day I hosted, featuring interviews about Media Democracy, live music performances, discussions about Headbanding, and the city coming by to shut us down, and then leaving, at which point we started again.
