New HowSound: House of Pod Closes…



HowSound’s host Rob Rosenthal is a forever enthusiast for community radio; it’s the place he first dove into radio. His former student Cat Jaffee, and her team, have for four years put community first at their House of Pod, a local podcast hub in Denver.

Sadly, they’ve lost their house, which is a loss for their Denver community and for podcasting as a whole; they have modeled a fine vision for others to hold. Cat talks about what happened on a new episode of HowSound.

Produced in collaboration with the Public Radio Exchange, HowSound delves into the ins-and-outs of radio storytelling in conversations about everything from fieldwork and recording techniques to narrative and ethics.

Each episode highlights the work of producers such as Sruthi Pinnameneni, Alex Blumberg, Noel King, Leila Day, John Burnett, David Isay, and Susan Stamberg, as well as emerging producers from podcasts and local NPR stations around the country, and participants in various Transom Workshops.

Host Rob Rosenthal launched and directed the radio program at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies for eleven years. He’s an audio guy through and through, producing documentaries, features, multi-media, audio tours, sound art, podcasts, commercials, and public service announcements as a freelancer.

Since the fall of 2011, Rob has been the lead instructor of the Transom Story Workshop, teaching eight-week workshops twice a year in Woods Hole, as well as weeklong workshops around the country.
