Smash Walls Radio is no more.
The Illicit Popsicle Podcast will start in full force this September.
Smash Walls Radio was a blast to do, but now it's time to move onto bigger and better things. The Illicit Popsicle Podcast will follow in Smash Walls' footsteps and keep the same kind of political-minded news and commentary we were proud of and add new elements as time goes on.
Mission: To boldly cover what no journalist in Oklahoma has covered before.
Smash Walls Radio is no more.
Smash Walls Radio, Episode 3: PIERCE THE HEAVENS (WITH YOUR DREAMS) http://wp.me/p3BApi-3K
Happy 2014! We talk a little about the Sochi Olympics, two activists in Oklahoma have been arrested on “terrorism hoax” (?!), we look back at some of our favorite shows and interviews in 2013, and pledge to not only do our best in 2014, but do…
We are currently looking for interviewees to talk about their experiences in minimum wage jobs, either tipped or standard, as well as offer their opinions with regard to the minimum wage being raised, kept as-is, lowered or abolished. You can either comment below or send this page a direct message. The interview will be recorded with the aim of publishing your response in the first episode of Trevor Podcasts the Economy. We will be contacting respondents over the next few days to work out interview times. Thanks!
Trevor has a new post at Center for a Stateless Society:
Last night at an ungodly hour, a longtime friend of mine sent me an article by Gawker journalist Camille Dodero, about a trial in Bartlesville, Okla. that wrapped up back in November. The person at...

Hi! I just recorded an episode of the podcast. It'll be up soon.
So this sucks. I wish I could come here and just sort of smooth things over with you all, but there's really no way for me to do that. Here's the deal: the last year has been incredible. I have learned so much about audio production, how to create good radio stories, etc. You are all fantastic listeners and fans, and I'm glad to have you. But as far as I can tell, this is the end of Smash Walls Radio.
My situation is not conducive to making podcasts right now. The process of making a podcast - of taking it from vague idea to writing a script to recording and interviewing to editing to publication - is incredibly involved. It requires a lot of sitting and tinkering and basically, time to do it - and right now, I don't have that kind of time. So much of my life is in flux at the moment that I can't justify simply sitting for eight hours to put a podcast together.
But it's more than that.
I'm torn right now between wanting to put out high-quality content and putting it out on the schedule I've kept since May. But I don't know if I can do that either.
I'm not going to shut down the podcast feed, or the website, Tumblr or this page. I'm leaving everything up in hopes that I will one day come back to this project. But as of now, I'm just burned out and needing to prioritize other things above this.
Hundreds of thousands of innocent people died between August 6 and August 9. Our mindless terrorism left a scar on the psyche of millions with an unimaginable half-life. Never forget. This is what "we" did to them.
None of these vicious acts by a vicious government justifies doing this to Japanese people, to civilian men, women and children who had no meaningful role in either the decision-making or in the fighting. No crime or atrocity of the Japanese government excuses a half-year campaign of terror against…
The Brazilian government has given Glenn Greenwald preemptive asylum in the event the US decides to crucify him next.
I try not to engage in hyperbole, but I am legitimately worried that journalism is about to become a whole lot harder to practice here soon.

Friends, neighbors and fellow workers, production on the first episode of Smash Walls Radio Season 4 has officially begun.
This is an interesting look at the trend of personal brands rising to prominence within established journalistic institutions.
Jul.23“This is in many ways how major media has domesticated blogging.”Yesterday the buzz in newsland was all about Nate Silver’s decision to move his FiveThirtyEight.com franchise from the New York Times to ESPN. A subplot was provided by public editor Margaret Sullivan’s column, in which she descr...
"[FiveThirtyEight's Nate Silver's] entire probability-based way of looking at politics ran against the kind of political journalism that The Times specializes in: polling, the horse race, campaign coverage, analysis based on campaign-trail observation, and opinion writing, or “punditry,” as he put it, famously describing it as “fundamentally useless.” Of course, The Times is equally known for its in-depth and investigative reporting on politics." - Margaret Sullivan, "Nate Silver Went Against the Grain for Some at The Times"
Of course, that's not a problem unique to the New York Times. It's also seen in just about any major media outlet you could think of. Silver possibly felt like the only place he /could/ fit in and continue to do the work he's become famous for is at a place where data is already a key component of reporting.
Not everyone liked Nate Silver’s approach, but many are disappointed that he’s leaving The Times.
We don't always cover sports news here at Smash Walls Radio, but when we do, it's bonkers:
