Introducing “Scene On Radio,” a New Podcast From CDS


The Center for Documentary Studies is pleased to announce the creation of a new podcast, Scene on Radio. Produced and hosted by CDS audio director John Biewen, the biweekly podcast will offer listeners a regular and frequent dose of audio work made at CDS—new stories produced by Biewen, the best pieces made by our students, and occasional gems plucked from the CDS radio archives.

“We at CDS have been making documentaries for public radio for years,” says Biewen. “We’re going to keep producing audio stories, but now first and foremost for this podcast. [Scene on Radio will feature] stories that explore human experience and the society we’re making for ourselves. In short: how are we doing? As the name suggests, this show will very often traffic in scenes—stuff happening out in the world, as opposed to lots of studio talk.”

The inaugural episode of Scene on Radio features the first story in Contested, a series that Biewen describes as “listening in on life in America through sports.”
