Intro from Jay Allison: To complement Curtis Fox's Manifesto on Podcasts, we feature here a few interesting examples of the genre submitted to Transom.
1. Frickin Circus
Part audio blog, part travel show, and part behind-the-scenes at the circus.
Dial-A-Stranger takes questions from random strangers (like you), and poses them to other strangers (like you) on the telephone. It’s a source of communication, assistance and entertainment. It is a community project, an anthology, and a hobby.
3. Love & Radio
Somewhere between NPR and a shockumentary special on Fox is alt.NPR’s Love & Radio–a surreal journey into a confusing world of ex-lovers, ex-cult members, and fruit. Lots of fruit. Love & Radio is what Ira Glass might make if he showed up to work drunk.
