Imagine there's a box.
Where is the box?
In America? In Ohio maybe - do you live in Ohio? Doesn't matter - you live somewhere, everybody does, imagine somewhere like that.
The point is, there's a box.
There's a box - and it's making some kind of sound - you can hear it. What is that? It's a voice! A voice is coming from the box.
There is a box and it's talking.
You lean in closer. There's something familiar about the voice - familiar but uncanny. You know this. You know it. But something about it is different, wrong somehow. And then you realise - the box isn't a radio, nothing so old fashioned as all that - this voice, this voice fom the box?
It's a podcast.
I'm Stove Toressani, and from TVQ and the DC Institute for Urban Change - I swear you're gonna be listening to a podcast called This Radio Life.
