The Morning After with Ben & Josh | 21 June 2021
Ben and Josh have an inlightening chat with Bronwyn Beatty about the fantastic and informative brand new book: Sharing the Mic: Community Access Radio in Aotearoa New Zealand Co-written by Bronwyn and Brian Pauling. Bronwyn tells us all about the research process the importance of access radio and a whole lot more!
From Invercargill to Auckland, community access radio has been broadcasting by, for, and about New Zealanders across four decades. Within a rapidly shifting mediascape, the twelve current stations came into existence through a combination of passion, hard work, community engagement, and enabling legislation, allowing the diversity of local communities to speak to themselves through the borderless realm of radio.
