    12th August 2011

    Trevor Dann hosts a #ukriots special looking at how UK radio coped with a difficult week of public disorder.

    Featuring LBC’s Nick Margerrison who presented a 6 hour show overnight when rioting broke out in Tottenham; BBC Radio Manchester’ Sarah Collins who was the on-air producer throughout the night when rioting broke out in Manchester on Tuesday evening; and AudioBoo’s CEO and Founder Mark Rock whose site saw their biggest peak of listening since launch.

    Sarah introduces the harrowing audio of the BBC Radio Manchester radio car being set on fire, and Mark brings a stand-out AudioBoo from a member of the public who witnessed one of the many fires in Croydon on Monday night.

    We tackle the issues around staff safety when broadcasting from a riot, how to screen callers effectively before putting them on air, what citizen journalism means, what happens in the studio when adrenalin takes over, what is impartiality, and how do we connect with the disconnected?

    Trevor also speaks to Ralph Bernard about the sad passing of Michael Bukht who founded Classic FM, Britain’s first national commercial radio station.

    Trevor also raised the recent news agenda – was Radio 4’s coverage of the News of the World and Amy Winehouse stories appropriate? They talked about the new model for independent commissioning and answered some questions from listeners via twitter – about why there’s no Today programme on Sunday, what’s the future of R4 LW and why is there such variation in the quality of radio drama on 4.

    As with every edition we ended the discussion by asking what Gwyneth has been listening to (the World Service, the Proms on R3 and the Reith Lectures).

    Podcasting Special
    15th July 2011

    Sony Radio Academy Award winners Helen Zaltzman and Olly Mann host this special edition of RadioTalk all about podcasting.

    We ask: Is there a different audience for radio and podcasting? How much editing is too much? Why aren’t podcasts bigger?

    There’s also interviews with famous podcasters Andrew Collins and Andy Zaltzman, where we tackle when and why you should stop podcasting, and how to make money out of your pod.

    And we find out what podcasts our panellists have been listening to and hear clips from their favourite shows.
