Let me start by saying this: I have great admiration for Aaron Henkin and Wendel Patrick. They decided to put their podcast under a microscope. Why? To re-think the show top to bottom. That’s risky. It’s no easy thing to let someone pick your work apart in a group setting but that’s just what they’ve done. In the end, they may radically transform their podcast.
Aaron and Wendel produce Out of the Blocks, It’s an hour-long show from WYPR in Baltimore. For each show, Aaron and Wendel pick a block in Baltimore and interview as many people who live and work on that block as possible. They then weave together their interviews in a kind of vox pop on steroids. The end result is a really great sounding tour of a neighborhood….
