Customer Reviews


Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking a podcast out of the studio! SOUND! PLACES! VOICES FROM THE WORLD. And for having a show that's thoughtful and thought provoking. iTunes is sinking under the weight of sadly-recorded yak. Also the host's voice is enigmatically appealing. I know this review sounds like it was written by the sister of someone on staff, but it wasn't. I'm just a fan!

Thoughtful stories about American society

I'm a huge podcast listener. So I'm really excited that veteran radio producer and teacher at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke, John Biewen, has started a new podcast called Scene on Radio. The first two episodes look at sports and how it can (or cannot) act as a bridge between race and class in America. Are sports "good for us"? Can they bring us together? The first episode looks at the winning Cardinals baseball team in St. Louis, post-Ferguson. The second episode features teammates on a girls high school basketball team. Very thoughtful, funny (nice Reagan impression!), and innovative. Love how the ending invites the listener to question the narrative we hear—and to create our own.


Scene on the radio is the lushly produced, smartly told, sound rich, tension and insight filled podcast we have all been waiting for. Thank you! And carry on.
