This week we are rebroadcasting our conversation from January with Josh Raulerson, local host of NPR’s “Morning Edition” on 90.5 WESA, Pittsburgh’s FM News Station.

Many people know Josh (or his voice, at least) from their morning commute, and while most probably realize he is intellectual and witty, it’s likely that few realize how highly educated Josh is, or how long he has been working radio. Josh has his Phd. in English and started broadcasting all the way back in his high school days in Iowa.

Josh sits down to talk education, media, Pittsburgh, and the future of public broadcasting.

This week we are rebroadcasting our conversation with Sean Collier from December of 2013.

Sean Associate Editor of Pittsburgh Magazine, a correspondent for WDVE's morning show and the host of the podcast "You Can't Handle The Truth: Honest Reviews of New Movies" in which he and a guest record their immediate reactions to brand new movies after seeing a screener. It's also a show we just happen to produce from the Writing on the Floor studios (and Zach is an occasional guest - most recently in July of 2014, reviewing Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).  Sean is also a stand-up comic, and we talk about writing, Pittsburgh, comedy and a whole lot more.

This week are re-posting our episode from December of 2012 with Mandy McFadden and Laura Zorch, two of the four authors of EatPGH. A lot of great stuff has happened with thier work since, but this was a fun conversation. 

They sat down in the studio to talk about their continued success with their book, their tour, the blog that started it all, and to talk about the upcoming presentation at South by Southwest. That’s right, the four brilliant young women from EatPGH are presenting at The SXSW digital conference. Amazing.

This is a fun episode with two really funny, awesome Pittsburghers who are following what they love and getting some much-deserved attention. They should serve as an example to anyone who has a passion for something to pursue it however possible. Check them out at EatPGH.com

 

Enjoy.

This week we are "rebroadcasting" our 2013 interview with Kahmeela Adams and Nina Gibbs, the duo behind the Pittsburgh chapter of The 48 Hour Film Project. The project is coming up in just a few weeks, so we figured it would be a good time to revisit our converstaion about it! Kahmeela and Nina have been running it for the last 6 years, and they stop by to talk about that, their work with the storied Hollywood theater in Dormont, how they got inovlved in filmmaking, and how you can get involved yourselves!
