When I tell people about my job at Global Voices they tend to get confused, sometimes even after they’ve seen the site. Admittedly it’s a pretty complex piece of journalism, research and community all mixed up together. For those people I recommend this podcast from Open Source Radio, where the host Chris Lydon interviews two of my bosses, Ethan Zuckerman and Solana Larsen about how and why Global Voices does what it does. They make a great argument for Global Voices as an idea and as a reality, and it’s great to hear the voices of people I’m so used to dealing with through text only (There is no Global Voices office, except maybe our irc channel).
It’s kind of long so you might want to actually put it on your “pod” of choice.
