O Dark 30
Friday Podcast 5/24/13
You can't start a three-day weekend without a new O'Dark podcast, good people! Well, you could, I guess. It's not illegal or anything. But really, why would you want to? So here's a little podcast for you. We've got three cool pieces for you today, and we hope you like them. First it's a show called Sift that we've only just discovered. This is the "Story of Earth" segment, and they must be covering everything in detail, because it's fourteen minutes long. Then it's something kind of cool...
We're very excited to bring you an encore presentation of episode 181, because it's our first palindromic episode since way back in the days when we brought you episode 171. I don't even know how long ago that was, but it must've been a really long time ago. What do we got this week? Tons of stuff! We got Polk Street Stories from the fine folks at Transom.org, The Bike Ride of '76 from producer Hugh Duncan, Four Seconds: Suicide Off the Golden Gate Bridge from our pal Jake Warga, and lots of...

It's nothing but O'Dark Hall-of-Famers on today's podcast, so you're gonna love it. You're gonna love it so much you leave it on your iPod forever, and burn copies of it on cd to mail to your friends. That's the current technology, right? Batting leadoff today is Nate DiMeo with his show The Memory Palace, and the "Giants in Those Days" episode. In the two spot, it's our Brooklyn buddy Eric Winnick with Beyond the Rope: A Captivity's Aftermath. And in the three hole, we've got heavy hitter...

Hey, it's the weekend, almost! Time to get your relaxation on with a little podcast action. So pour yourself a nice cool glass of lemonade, settle into your hammock, and blast this 'cast into your earholes. We'll start off with a little "theater of the mind" from Joseph Dougherty and the fine folks at Handwritten Theatre. And if that's not enough for you, we'll bring you a new edition of KUT's own Views & Brews Remix from O'Dark alum Rebecca McInroy. It's a very compelling look at the...
Episode # 180
You know, around here at the O'Dark office complex, we get lots of phone calls and postcards with the same question: "Can you please, please, air the show twice in a row on Sundays, and then again at least once every night of the week?" Well, in a word, no. We asked our program director if we could dedicate 24 hours or more of airtime to O'Dark every week, and he was strangely reluctant. So we make do with the next best thing, which is to put the show up on the interwebs so you can listen to...
