USING PODCASTS AND RADIO TO DISTRIBUTE STORIES
With a number of experienced and talented radio engineers and reporters in our network, it was a natural move for BINJ to enter the podcast and broadcast space. Testing the waters, columnist and Network Director Jason Pramas began uploading a recorded version of Apparent Horizon to multiple podcast platforms, while the team also produced a special, “Return to Dewey Square,” to complement our oral history commemorating the fifth anniversary of Occupy Boston.
Finally, building on the aforementioned assets plus interviews and dispatches from ongoing news coverage, BINJ has teamed with Boston radio veteran Dave Goodman’s Independent Broadcast Information Service (IBIS) for a biweekly news program called LOCAL EDITION: The BINJ Report. The show initially aired on the City of Boston’s LPFM radio station, WBCA 102.9 FM, and was distributed as a podcast as well through platforms including iTunes and Soundcloud.
