Why Am I Putting This Online? Oh God… My First Radio Show

In April of 2005, Andrew Lee and Abdul-Hakim Shabazz gave me an hour of air time one Saturday at the end of my internship at WXNT. I recently discovered it on an external hard drive with a bunch of Abdul in the Morning podcasts from 2007-2008, which has been turned in to the WXNT’s Ghost podcast. I hosted with my friends Robb Greene and Jason Neeland.

It was less bad than I remembered.

Crazy Larry Interview on WXNT

I found an archive of 2007/2008 WXNT podcasts. I am launching an archive podcast here: Here is my interview with Crazy Larry when I guest hosted the show on August 3, 2007. I apologize at how bad this is surely to be…

List of Indiana Podcasts

I am not a huge music listener, to be honest. I like to listen to audiobooks and podcasts. There are a lot of great Indiana podcasts, but it is tough to find them. Many of local podcasters had great idea, but haven’t published since the W. administration. So I put together this list of Indiana podcasts and internet talk stations that are current and worth your time. I also included a list of my favorite apps and national podcasts.

It isn’t comprehensive, and it’s based on my  judgement of quality, if it is up to date, and broad interest by most Hoosiers. If you think I am missing something, drop me an email! Where possible, I have posted the URL where you can find the RSS feed vs. posting the RSS feed. This is for our non-iPod listeners.

Internet Talk Stations: – The only true online, independent Indiana talk station. They are a month old, so it will be exciting to see where they go. – Not Indiana focused, but they do have a Hoosier show: Gillespie.

My Favorites: – My favorite new local podcast – Abdul and Indy Politics do great work. – Smiley in the Morning – A large amount of local content. – I love this little podcast. -Economic Club of Indiana Speaker Archive Podcast – There are many, many churches that post sermons, but Mount Pleasant Christian Church and Chris Philbeck is my top pick. – Discontinued, but a great look at Indianapolis Tech.


Music: – No RSS, but the shows are online. – No RSS, but the shows are online.  – No RSS, but the shows are online.
