Listening Post: Voices From A Central City Porch

Aug 16, 2013

This month WWNO launches a new project called The Listening Post. With the help of local artist Jacques Duffourc, we’ve made three portable recording stations that can move around the city. We’ll host occasional events where anyone can sit down to talk.

And we’ll… well… listen.

Jesse Hardman is a professor of journalism at City University of New York and veteran media development professional with Internews. He’s been getting the Listening Post going, with the help of Kate Richardson.

WWNO News Director Eve Troeh talked to Jesse and Kate about the project, and played a selection of Listening Post voices recorded on a Sunday afternoon porch session in Central City.
