New Transom Show: Prostate Diaries

A humorous take on a dark subject.  After a prostate exam, what if you pretend to cry and tell the doctor that you feel used and that you know he won't call you ever again?

Not you average public radio story...

Transom Multimedia

Transom offers up a new work, about a man struggling with obesity, which perhaps stretches the definition of what is an "audio" production.  I mean that only for the purposes of this site.  They actually call it multimedia but the sound rich production and de-emphasized and choppy (but brilliant) animation and the piece's aurally innovative, sound-driven nature does make this piece an audio doc to me.  Maybe.  At any rate, that's really neither here nor there.  It is really cool and it comes from Transom so, it gets posted.

UK Today

While the furrowed brows of the BBC World Service are on holidays, they've let the creatives loose, with great effect. Two engaging documentaries about UK citizens who have been put somewhere difficult. Philip McTaggart's son committed suicide, changing his life. Mary Thida Lun's mom fled the Khmer Rouge, and now has a daughter serving in war zones as a British civil servant. Big topics, in a manner more full of human contradiction and personality than we usually hear on the BBC World Service.
