PRX Plays Vegas

Hi friend of PRX,

The flights are booked, the hotel rooms ready, and the bars are open.

No, not in Charlotte…but in Las Vegas, where public radio programmers will descend next week for what our expense forms call “productive mingling.”

Find PRX there and let’s confab about a new PRX distribution system, WNYC’s new broadcast offering Here’s the Thing with Alec Baldwin, a drop-out special, and our take on mobile apps.

Ring a ding,
John

Organic Radio

Farming and more

New research about organic farming suggests it may be as healthy as regular food. These pieces provide perspective on farming today and in the future:

  • LJC Harvest Public Media brings us Farmer of the Future: from corporations to various sizes of farms to sustainability.
  • A man, a beard, a few horses, and a plow. Yup, old school farming lives.
  • Five Farms is a series of one-hour programs following farm families through a year of their work.
