Previously Unreleased YPC Podcasts Now Available

Five previously unreleased podcasts of our most recent Radio Radiance commissions are now available for the first time. The podcasts, which were recorded live at SubCulture in NYC in April 2015, are created and hosted by WWFM’s David Osenberg. The first episode is available now with Caroline Mallonée and her compelling, but quirky, work about Google, entitled “Search.”

In subsequent weeks, the podcasts will feature Aaron Siegel’s “The Mysteries of Nothing,” Ryan Lott’s (aka Son Lux) “We Will Find Each Other,” Frank J. Oteri’s “Love Games,” and Samuel Adler’s “Fable of Fables.”
