Episode 20 – Birth of a Network

This week join Andrew and Jonathan as they discuss the beginnings of NBC and the pivotal role radio played in establishing the network paradigm. Do you know your Marconi’s from your Sarnoffs? What does “red” and “blue” have to do with it? And most importantly, how does a fruit millionaire play a role? Join us as we explore the origins of the National Broadcasting Company during the turbulent radio times of the 1920s.

Episode 19 – Production Geographies

This week join Jonathan and Andrew as they mistake the map for the territory. Inspired by Steve Voorhees, this week we explore production geographies replete with all their nooks and crannies both real and theoretical. Where is “Hollywood” exactly? Did you know Captain Kirk once beamed into Mayberry? What’s Old Tucson have to do with it all? So join us as we walk the streets — so to speak — of worlds both real and imagined.
