Selkie Spoken Word?

Wifey and I remember hearing a spoken-word, like an audio-book, story of a Selkie who eventually has a child. We don't recall it being a poem, nor was it music-with-sparse-lyrics; it was telling a story, with maybe some short musical interludes, and was probably an hour or more long. We heard it on Public Radio (not sure in which state) several years ago. Anybody know what this was?

Donating to Public Radio

So I've been donating to public radio about as long as I've been listening to it. But as I'm getting ready for end of year donations, I realized I listen to podcasts instead of the radio now. So should that affect how I give? [more inside]

US equivalent of Desert Island Discs?

Please help me identify a program I heard on US public radio in the late eighties or early nineties. The choreographer Mark Morris brought some of his favorite records to play and discuss. A search for his name on the BBC Desert Island Discs site returns no results, so this must have been a different program with the same concept. TIA, hivemind!

Can you help me find a public radio story?

A few weeks ago, public radio aired a report about a relocation program for families from unsafe neighborhoods. The reporter focused on difficulties participants had adjusting to their new neighborhoods, like unspoken conventions about street parking. [more inside]

Podcast search, "diverse" edition

A friend is looking for US-based podcasts that are interesting, different, and NOT produced by white dudes. This is for work on podcasts as a medium for material that doesn't fit into "traditional" radio categories and as a place for experimentation. She's finding lots of great stuff, but says with the exception of "Longest shortest time", they're all by white guys. Do you have any recommendations for US-produced podcasts that are experimental, interesting, and from a different perspective? Thanks a lot!

Help me crowdsource an archival project for my public radio show.

I am trying to create a search-able, browse-able archive for the public radio show I work for. I would like ask our audience to help me populate this archive, because there are many tech-savvy people in our audience -- and it seems like a project that could easily get done through crowdsourcing. I'm looking for software/websites/advice for managing a large crowdsourced project to make sure the archive is accurate. [more inside]

Great NPR pieces from the past?

Where can I find significant/classic/cherished NPR pieces from the 70's, 80's, and 90's? Archive.org has scarce selection and NPR.org doesn't seem to archive earlier the early 90's.

He's a good man. And Thorough.

I started at an internship where the vibe is very sink or swim. I'm treading water, but I'm not feeling like I am getting the attention or recognition that I'm used to, nor do I feel like I am performing at my full potential. How do I feel ok about this? [more inside]

All Costs Considered

Streaming radio production cost: what is the cost to a local radio station for internet streaming of one program to one listener? Not just the cost of paying the royalty cost of a national program (like Prairie Home Companion}, but the local costs incurred by the station, e.g. servers, software, staff time devoted to webcasting. Bonus question: is it more or less expensive than the cost of downloading a single podcast to a single listener?

How can I unsubscribe from American Public Media's e-mail newsletters?

I'm currently subscribed to, and wish to unsubscribe from, American Public Media's "Speaking of Faith" and "Writer's Almanac" e-mail newsletters. Neither APM's site nor the newsletters themselves seem to offer an unsubscribe function. I even e-mailed APM several months ago to request that I be removed from their mailing list, but haven't heard back. Short of adding APM to my ISP's or mail client's spam filter, how can I stop these newsletters?

Entertainment and pop culture commuter listening?

Can anyone recommend further listening along the lines of "The Treatment" in Real/WMA/mp3-based streaming format? I mean, obviously there's "Fresh Air" and "ATC." But are there more? I drive a lot. A LOT. I am interested in entertainment and popular culture. Not so much the political, please, unless it's far-out crackpot funny stuff.
