The Podcast Times

Last week, I met Todd Gitlin in the studio at Inside Higher Ed's world headquarters on K Street to record an interview about his new book, The Bulldozer and the Big Tent. (The "studio" is actually the publisher's office, since it has the best acoustics. Podcasting has become a routine if not a regular thing for us; here's the backlist. I'm still getting used to the format itself and trying to think about its potential as a way to supplement my column, since merely duplicating content of a written piece in audio (or vice versa) isn't very interesting or appealing.

At TPM Cafe, Gitlin expresses what seems like surprised appreciation to his interviewer "for actually having read the book." Given journalistic norms, that probably means I'll never get a steady gig again, and certainly not in radio or TV.

But in consequence of this peculiar tendency, I have notes indicating that Henry's netroots essay is quoted on page 184 and then again on page 185.
