S. A. McHugh Radio National Needs All Kinds Of Storytellers (16 Oct) 2012 New Matilda Paddington, NSW newmatilda.com

Abstract

Cutbacks at Radio National will downgrade the documentary, features and drama the network does so well. New storytelling content inspired by US radio innovators should complement, not replace this, argues Siobhan McHugh On a study tour of the US last year, I interviewed key radio innovators including Jay Allison, founder of the sell-out live storytelling show The Moth and a seminal figure in US public broadcasting for over 35 years; John Biewen of Duke University Centre for Documentary Studies; and Julie Shapiro, the curator of Third Coast Audio, a lively Chicago indie audio forum.
