I’m putting together a few posts about NPR’s Bryant Park Project, whose closing was almost five years ago. I’m fascinated by their decision to shut it down, and where it fit in NPR’s landscape, as well as if it was mishandled.
Listening back, I’m finding interesting little gems every so often. This is from one of the later months of the show, posted May 9, 2008. A great story featuring one of my favorite bands growing up.
Also, if Robert Ashley says he is back, then he is back. His great show, A Life Well Wasted, has been dormant for nearly three years. Fans have been clamoring for a new show, and they finally have one. If you think you won’t like a podcast about games, and the people who play one, I challenge you to listen to this. Creative, inventive, ALWW is a work of art.
