    Talk shows are a powerful way to inform and engage people interested in the topics you research as an academic or advocate for as an non-profit organization. But most think of live radio talk shows as the preserve of media conglomerates who own broadcast towers, Federal Communications Commission licenses and large production crews. Resources that most of us don’t have.This workshop, however, introduces academics and non-profit leaders to tools and techniques that allows them to create and run their own LIVE radio shows. This is LIVE audio on the web that allows your audience to ask questions and provide perspective.
