Ad from The New York Times, 1971. (via niemanlab's Josh Benton

🎵 All Things Considered Considered Heeee-eeere! 🎵

A producer from PRI contacted me the other day about being a guest on a radio show to talk about food safety.

I explained that I didn’t have time to find out if there was a Rutgers University radio station I could go to to record my end of conversation, but I explained that as a podcaster, I had a relatively good quality microphone and we could do the conversation via Skype.

After sending an MP3 to prove I could meet their audio quality standards she ran the idea up the chain. In the end they decided that they really didn’t need me as a guest.

So yeah, I’m pretty convinced radio’s dead.
