This week on the Longest Shortest Time podcast, Hillary Frank confronts Ina May Gaskin, mother of the modern natural birth movement, over feeling betrayed by the empowering messages about unmedicated labor in her books. If you wanted a natural birth and didn’t get one, Ina May Gaskin is looking for your feedback as well. Here’s where you can tell your story or leave a comment: http://wp.me/p4bvGZ-15K

    Maureen Corrigan reviews Schmuck, by Ross Klavan, a book loosely based on his father Gene Klavan’s ‘legendary’ radio career in mid-20th century New York City:

Klavan clearly has inherited his father’s gift for comedy: Not only is his loony plot the narrative equivalent of a Rube Goldberg contraption (with surprise guest appearances by the likes of Frank Sinatra and comedian Soupy Sales), but the novel is replete with snappy conversations and descriptions. For instance, when the clever Sari is fixed up with a bland, WASP lawyer, she comments that he looks like “the offspring of a tennis court and a yacht.”

  1. Ever wonder what it’s like in the studio of a radio show? Well, here you go. We wanted to share this excellent story with you and recognize Bill Siemering, who revolutionized NPR and is a major reason why Fresh Air became a national program in 1987.

    This podcast takes you into the studio and explains the radio clock:

    There’s a term that epitomizes what we radio producers aspire to create: the “driveway moment.” It’s when a story is so good that you can’t leave your car. Inside of a driveway moment, time becomes elastic–you could be staring straight at a clock for the entire duration of the story, but for that length of time, the clock has no power over you.

    But ironically,  inside the machinery of public radio–the industry that creates driveway moments–the clock rules all.

  1. Everything you need to know about how they see Obama was what happened at where Bryan Fischer works with the American Family Association shortly after the election in 2008. The group, which calls itself a Christian ministry, passed around a picture of Obama’s face, which they had blended with that of Adolf Hitler. And they sort of posted it on the wall and all laughed at it. It showed Obama with a little Hitler moustache and swastikas behind him. They have attacked Obama relentlessly since his election in 2008. They regard him as the avatar of godless socialism.

    Rob Rosenthal does a really fantastic program called How Sound (nee Saltcast) about the “backstory to great radio storytelling” and I am this week’s guest. If you want to make radio stories like mine, (or Ira, or Joe Richman, or The Kitchen Sisters) go download & listen to all of Rob’s…

    If you’re interested in making radio, listen to Roman Mars and Rob Rosenthal talk.

    In this show, we return to people who’ve been on This American Life in the last ten years, whose lives were drastically altered by 9/11, including Hyder Akbar, an Afghan-American teen who moved to Afghanistan after his father was tapped to become governor of Kunar province there.
