We read the newspapers, see the reports on TV, but what aren't we seeing when it comes to Occupy Wallstreet. Well, No One's Listening is an audio show...so you still won't get to see the difference. However, you can close your eyes and pretend you are on a museum audio tour!
Host Irene McGee and produce Winslow Porter head to the Occupy Wallstreet. The show opens with reporter Drew Grant, who has been covering the protest since day one. Later in the show we get a call-in from comedian Jamie Kilstein live. Jamie's the cohost of the popular political podcast Citizen Radio. The show wraps with an interview from Jesse LaGreca a writer for the Daily Kos who gained fame after footage from his un-aired Fox news video interview went viral. The footage, which was caught by a citizen journalist, garnered lots of attention because wherein he "explained" the problem with the news media coverage at the event. The viral video was even mentioned on the Jon Stewart show.
I'd like to dedicate this show to my student loans.

Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales stops by the N1L studio (ok he calls in...but it still made us feel fancy...and if you click on the link in that sentence you can watch Irene interviewing Jimmy in person). We also were lucky enough to meet the who the NY Times referred to as "The King of Tumblr" Anthony De Rosa. He discusses the growing populartity of his blog http://soupsoup.tumblr.com/. Plus, journalist, Adam Clark Estes calls in to explain how and why Wikipedia is valuable for journalists today. PLUS, special guest Skye the Ladybug calls in! Finally, in fantastic news we - in an effort to keep things as "real" as possible are creating and producing No One's Listening in a studio in Brooklyn. Why? Because we met the ridiculously talented Winslow Porter who is now a proud member of the N1L team!
