Listen Now! In The Loop: Voting and its Discontents

Posted at 12:36 PM on October 20, 2006 by Jeff Horwich

October's "In The Loop" is here!

It's a take on election-season unlike much of anything else you'll hear. And -- in the words of one reviewer -- it's "a hoot." As always, there are two ways to listen:

1. Download the MP3 (right-click this link and choose, "Save Target As...")

2. Stream the show on your computer using RealPlayer

Our house band for this show was The Smarts, who offered up great interludes and an original tune for the season: "Why Can't People Think Like Me?"

Whaddaya think?

"Locally Grown" reviews the live "In The Loop"

The Northfield-based podcast/radio show/blog "Locally Grown" has a nice write-up of our most recent show in the UBS Forum (premiering on air Oct. 20), along with some swell photos and a video.

Locally Grown contributor Griff Wigley also added some of his own thoughts to the topic of "Voting and Its Discontents." Listen to Griff's audio comment -- we're glad to have it, and we'd love to get more of these if anyone else is so-inspired. They're great potential material for the podcasts we expect to be debuting soon.
