From original ‘About AudioActivism’ post: “I reserver the creative right to change the focus of my podcast/radio show and to switch over suddenly to a completely different subject but *now* I dig this one.”
What AudioActivism is and does is in flux. One constant is audio. Another is my love of all peoples, democracy and social justice. Oh yeah and I’m always going to be politically and socially a leftist! I’m just too old to change that now. It’s my definition of the term ‘Activism’ that has become more complex. [Here is how wikipedia defines activism.]
My first personal definition of Activism was taught to me by people who worked tirelessly for others benefit. So when I thought of activism I thought of them. They are non-violent protestors, conscientious objectors, marchers, and organizers for beautiful causes. Yet the more I looked and listened the more I realize that everyone can be an activist.
We can all engage ourselves in a cause. Our causes are more diverse than there are people in the world. If we see something we find unjust we can act to change it. I find the state of our media in the world to be highly unjust. AudioActivism.org is my way of changing this.
So I hope when you listen to my podcasts and read my blog entries you think about how I’m framing them in the term, activism. Right now, January 19, 2005, I’m fascinated with Grassroots Journalism (a.k.a. Citizen Journalism, Distributed Journalism, etc.) and how we can act to become the media and present other things to think about. There are few more powerful non-violent methods of social change than sharing ideas with people. That’s what activist journalism is you know… sharing ideas.

The 3URLs show is a weekly talk radio style show about three websites involved in some sort of activism. Once a week I’ll talk about the sites and why you should visit them. Occasionally the show will contain an interview with someone involved in activism &/or the web and we’ll discuss three or more websites that interest them. The goal of audioactivism.org is to tell people about cool websites that perform great activism in media, politics, information, etc..

I reserver the creative right to change the focus of my podcast/radio show and to switch over suddenly to a completely different subject but *now* I dig this one. Isn’t that one of the beautiful freedoms of non-commercial webcasting? 😀
