Poodle Radio Turns Five!

The Fifth in Our Occasional Audio Series, Featuring City2.Org and Shannon Kelley


Here’s the fifth podcast of Poodle Radio, the weekly-ish program recorded at the KCSB studios and broadcast every Friday morning, from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on KJUC, 770/880 AM in the UCSB dorms.

On this week’s broadcast, The Indy‘s senior editor Matt Kettmann chats about new and old media with Warren Schultheis and Ryan Gantz. Schultheis, a former Indy intern and graphic designer, recently launched City2.org, a Web site that aggregates Santa Barbara news articles, hosts community forums, and provides a platform for citizen journalism via its blogs. Gantz is involved with SBNation.com, a Web site that serves as headquarters for blogs written by sports fans across the country.

Following that conversation, longtime Indy writer Shannon Kelley comes on the show to read a tale of personal discovery and humanitarian work in post-Katrina New Orleans. The story was published in a new anthology called Submerged: Tales from the Basin.
