The organization Transom is a wonderful resource to learn more about radio-making, podcast equipment, storytelling techniques and functions as a public media performance space.
"Transom channels new work, voices, and ideas into public media through the Internet and workshops. Our goal is to be useful and inspiring. Transom is a performance space, an open editorial session, an audition stage, a library, and a hangout. Our purpose is to pass the baton of mission and good practice in public media through tools, philosophy, and technique.
