WAMC Podcasts

Jun 20, 2016

  On-demand isn't all there is - but it is important. We're making sure that WAMC is on track in providing our radio content - and more - to you when and where you choose. 

Patrick Garrett and Ashleigh Kinsey join us to tell us more about WAMC Podcasts - which you can find on iTunes, Stitcher , and the Google Play store.

It's 2016 and podcasts have been out for over a decade. What makes a podcast a podcast? We delve into that and more with WNYC's Chief Content Officer Dean Capello. 

  Muddy Puppy Media will present two Podcasting 101 workshops from 10:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday, April 30 at the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts in Pittsfield, MA and on Sunday, May 1 at Time & Space Limited in Hudson, NY.

Susan Davis will lead the workshops which will introduce participants to the building blocks of a great podcast, including true listening, the art of hosting, perfecting a sound, achieving a tone, and more.

Davis is a producer who has worked on radio shows like Marketplace, Soundprint, All Things Considered, and Talk of the Nation. Her recent podcast clients include NPR’s Alt Latino, The Good Fight with Ben Wikler, Press Record and Classical Classroom.

  This Friday, the 2015 Solid Sound Festival will kick off at MASS MoCA in North Adams MA. The music and art festival is curated by the rock-band Wilco, a Grammy award winning group that has been trying to break your heart and loving you, baby, for 20 years.

On Saturday The Hunter Center at MASS MoCA will host "John Hodgman's Big Time Comedy Thing" with an astounding line-up of amazing comedy acts including Hodgman himself and Tig Notaro, Jessica Williams, improv group Superego and Paul F. Tompkins. (Lest ye fret about comedy not working in the midday summer sun - know that the Hunter Center is indoors and is perfect for stand-up, sketch, and improv.)

Paul F. Tompkins' career launched from writing and acting on HBO’s Mr. Show with Bob and David. His television work includes hosting gigs and guest appearances on just about everything funny and he's the host of the Dead Authors Podcast, a new Earwolf Podcast called Spontaneanation and regularly appears on Comedy Bang Bang and Thrilling Adventure Hour. It's safe to call him a staple of the comedy-podcast genre (which we're here to assure you is a real thing). He hosts No, You Shut Up! on Fusion, and the web-series Speakeasy for Made Man.

    Stand-up comedian, Marc Maron, kicks of his “Out of the Garage” Tour at The Egg in Albany, NY this Friday, February 1st.

The title of the show refers to the home-studio in his garage – the primary location used to record his very popular podcast “WTF with Marc Maron.” The podcast features perceptive stream-of-consciousness introductions and lengthy (usually one-on-one, occasionally one-on-two for example: Tenacious D) conversations with iconic entertainment personalities. The podcast premiered in 2009 and regularly hits #1 on iTunes and has been called a “must-listen” by Vanity Fair, The New York Times, and many other publications and entertainment websites.
