Episode One Extras: Video & extended interviews
There's only so much you can fit into 53 minutes of radio, which means that a lot of really interesting stuff ends up on the cutting room floor. Or, at least, in a folder called "extra stuff" on our editing stations.
We'd like to share some of that with you, here on the web, where we have a little more space.
This week, our "goodies," as Don likes to call them, are extended audio interviews with two of the guests on this week's episode, Turning the Media Inside Out. They're with Sue Gardner, the executive director of Wikimedia (the not-for-profit organization that operates Wikipedia), and with Alan Rusbridger, the editor-in-chief of the Britain-based Guardian newspaper.
We also have a video interview; in this week's show, online broadcaster and Emmy-award-winner Leo Laporte took us on a tour of his California studio. That's what's in the radio and podcast version of this week's ReCivilization. But Don and Leo also sat down for a more formal chat, which we filmed. That's below.
In coming weeks, we'll have more exclusive web content, including behind-the-scenes photos and interviews, as well as other videos and extended cuts. We're also planning to do a live online chat, where you can ask questions about the series and what you've heard.
We hope you enjoy listening and watching as much as we've enjoyed creating.
