Why quit? Why not stay in the trenches with your public radio brothers/sisters in arms and work with some of the stations who are already in the midst of creating what you are just now deciding to build? I can’t imagine it will be easier to affect change in an industry from the outside than as an insider with vision, connections and drive.

(As a side note, your word choice of “ghetto” in this context is overblown, incorrect and disgusting. And, your use of “gimpy” in your author bio is super ableist. You talk about wanting to reach non-white/old/upper-middle class audiences, and this is the language you’re using to do it? Good luck.)

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
