For those with a love and passion for all
things Brasil, here's a little audio treat from our good friend Daniel
Roversi who's started a hot little radio show entitled Viva-Brasil in conjunction with
the folks at viva-radio.com...enjoy!
This month’s New Yorker Out Loud pod cast series, which consists of a New Yorker fiction writer discussing a story from the magazine’s voluminous archives, features the gifted Haitian writer Edwidge Danticat conversing with The New Yorker fiction editor, Deborah Treisman, about talented Dominican writer Junot Díaz’s 1995 short story "How to Date a Brown Girl (Black Girl, White Girl, or Halfie)." The pod cast includes a reading of the straight up hilarious story by Mr. Díaz. In addition, The New Yorker online has another very funny selection written by Díaz as well as a fascinating excerpt from Danticat’s forthcoming memoir and a short story she wrote in 1995.
This week, issue 40 of Fader Magazine is available as a free, downloadable PDF podcast. Also

(yes!), and a zillion other past, present and future greats.
TalkShoe is a podcasting service and directory that combines recorded conference calls with revenue sharing for show hosts.
It appears to be very simple to use and the community elements make me think this service could be successful. I can’t imagine many show hosts are going to make much money off of this, but the online video world has shown that when sharing is easy people will do it.
Here’s how TalkShoe works.
A Windows desktop client allows up to 25 people to participate in a conversation and chat behind the scenes.
Calls are automatically recorded and entered into the site’s podcast directory.
Show hosts receive money from the site’s ad revenues according to the number of their show’s listeners and for referring others to the service.
Correction: The sneaker we had in this post previously was not the proper Muhammad Ali Collection shoe. Thanks to the folks at Adidas for catching that and forwarding us an image of the right one. See below...

Doesn’t it seem like we're all just helplessly adrift, moving at the “speed of technology”, that we are nothing more than leaves, blowing in the winds of non-stop technological advancement and evolution. Existentialism aside, Fader Magazine has taken it to, like the dude from Mad TV says, a “whole nutha level” with this one. Even though the Summer Music issue of Fader Magazine doesn’t hit newsstands until next week, the entire magazine is available as a podcast for free using i-Tunes right now. The Summer Music issue features covers stories on Rick Ross and Nina Sky as well as a wickedly creative multi-page Adidas ad introducing the Muhammad Ali sneaker & apparel collection, “The Greatest”. I can’t front the kicks in the ad are sick, with a Stan Smith kind of vibe to them.
While we are on the topic of Adidas’s Muhammad Ali collection,
please do yourself a favor and check out their site. It a must see, multi-sensory, audio visual experience. Not only are the kicks and apparel quite cool but also the site itself is a treasure trove of multimedia goodies. Check out the crazily innovative Adidas Muhammad Ali site: www.adidas.com
Welcome our first official podcast, compliments of the Sound Of Art.
About a month ago, our peoples over at SOA interviewed us for their podcast. Here's the three part series that culminates this week. Big up to Leo Vasquez at Sound Of Art for really thinking differently. If you haven't been to one of his art show's, you really need to get to his next one. It is without doubt the future of accessible art. Without further ado...
