Episode 36 - Two chats at PodcampUK


In this episode I meet Richard Rudin and Glyn Wintle in Birmingham at the amazing unConference that was PodcampUK

Richard Rudin is a senior lecturer on journalism at John Moores University in Liverpool and Glyn Wintle is from the Open Rights Group.

We talk about the state of Journalism in the UK today, give a heads up to Jeremy Paxman, discuss how politicians react to 'real people', touch apon independent journalism, Electronic Voting and preserving our civil liberties in the digital world.

Richards podcast can be found at www.Rudinpodcast.libsyn.com, The Open Rights Group are at www.openrightsgroup.org and the little song I sneak in at the end is by Josh Woodward entitled 'The Wrong side Of The Revolution.'

Only one word to describe this podcast, "scary". I don't think it helped that I finally got round to watching Farenheit 9/11 on the same day I listened to this episode.
Thanks for doing this one Christian, really has opened my eyes

Hi CornishWomble, thanks for the comment, always appreciated. I thought this podcast was a little lighter on the scariness this time but i am obviously wrong.. :)

..and Manq don't worry if you missed PodcampUK as you can go to www.PodcampUK.com to see the streams that were recorded live of the event.

Cheers all.
