This topic will chronicle a radio documentary series in progress.
Barrett Golding and Josef Verbanac are bicycling the Lewis & Clark Trail to make pieces for the series “Hearing Voices” for broadcast on Savvy Traveler.
Barrett and Jo were early developers of the Transom site and have offered to post from their journey: the technical challenges, the editorial choices, the roads taken and not. Feel free to prod them with questions. Perhaps they’ll even answer.
(This discussion is also linked to a Lewis & Clark site, so we may get some non-radio questions too, but Barrett has promised to keep us on topic as much as possible from a bicycle seat.)
So begins The Great Pains and Accuracy Tour* with the question: What have we done with the woods, waterways, prairies and towns these last couple hundred years?
*”Your observations are to be taken with great pains and accuracy, to be entered distinctly and intelligibly, for others as well as yourself”
–Jefferson’s Instructions to Lewis, 20 June 1803
