Feature: Cracking the Code with Andrea Seabrook at Megapolis

After 18 years of covering the scandal and name calling on Capitol Hill, Andrea Seabrook walked away from being NPR’s lead congressional reporter.   She decided it was time to talk about politics and government policy in a new way, and began a break out podcast called DecodeDC.   She recently visited The New School campus to address the Megapolis Audio Festival, where she called for a “coup to overcome traditional media” and challenged the crowd to be part of a renewal of journalism; to make reporting about congress more than just a sporting event.  WNSR’s Rachel Morrissey spoke with her.

Andrea’s podcast can be found at: http://www.decodedc.com/  And be sure to check out her brilliant and inspiring Transom Manifesto.

Feature: Gender Radio – Episode 1

What began as a simple personal aesthetic made me question everything that shaped, and continues to shape, how I conduct how myself as a cis-man.  From those personal inquiries spawned this radio series– an attempt to understand how the general public shapes gender as it relates to sexuality. This is the introductory episode of a new type of pedagogy in Gender Studies. Take a voyeuristic voyage with me and anonymous guests as we expose our understanding of gender and sexuality. — Dustin Gavin, Producer
