    Re:sound #262 Moo and Man

    Moo and Oink

    By Cher Vincent for The Nod from Gimlet Media

    No Bad News

    By Sarah Geis for Love+Radio from Radiotopia

    Re:sound #259 Divided We Payphone

    This hour, we trot across middle America, with a story from a Nashville neighbourhood, and a Missouri payphone that won’t stop ringing.

    The Great Divide 

    By Meribah Knight for The Promise from Nashville Public Radio (2018) 

    Big Man, a public housing resident from Nashville’s Cayce Homes, walks across the street to meet the wealthy couple who live in the fancy new home on the hill. In many ways, their lives couldn’t be more different, but in breaking the silence between the two sides of the gentrifying neighborhood, a friendship begins to form — only to be dashed in a way no one could have expected. 

    [Note: this is the 4th episode of the series]

    Putting Columbia’s Pay Phone Mystery to Rest 

    By Emerald O’Brien for KBIA in Columbia Missouri (2016) 

    Payphones went from being a staple of many people’s daily lives to nearly completely antiquated in a matter of decades. This is true in Columbia, too – with only a couple dozen phones still standing. But KBIA's Emerald O'Brien looked into why one downtown payphone has an unusual amount of activity, but only in the middle of the night. And answering this question led her down an unexpected path.


    By Laura Barton for Short Cuts from Falling Tree Productions and BBC Radio 4 (2017) 

    A box full of postcards, stamped and unsent, may seem insignificant, but as Laura Barton explains, those cards can capture a time and place long forgotten.
