Joan Rivers (June 8, 1933 - September 4, 2014) on The Ed Sullivan Show, April 23, 1967.

Because she was brilliant and cutting edge, and we forget that.

Everyone on the internet thinks that they are the last bastion of perfect satire and everyone else is a peat bog of false irony and misguided earnestness.

In Episode Two of Reasonably Sound — Mike Rugnetta's awesome podcast on all things aural — Mike wonders why we wince when we hear our own voices. To help him out, I stopped by, winced at my own voice, and tried to reconstruct, over the speakers, how my voice sounds to me, in my very own head. 
Also check out the Reasonably Sound Instagram account, where Mike is live-Instragraming the episode (an experiment I love), to see a bonus picture of me as a 10-year-old in a choir robe!

You can see my legs which is bad because I was in a swivel chair and couldn’t stop swiveling the whole time which probably made the broadcast worse but oh well, I really like to swivel. #emmys

Crazy thrilled to announce that tomorrow, August 26th — Women’s Equality Day — White House economist Betsey Stevenson will be taking over the blog for a Chartist in Residence Day.
We are handing Betsey that keys to the blog, and she will be discussing the importance of ensuring women earn a fair and equal wage, promoting the women’s economic agenda, and using terms I will have to Google.
Thank you to the awesome team over at the White House for helping bring this together. Tune in tomorrow and learn some stuff from probably the smartest person to ever post on this blog!

Whee!

I’ve been secretly working on putting a podcast together for a little while. It’s called Reasonably Sound and next week I finally get to have people listen to it! It’s about sound and music and audio and the science, theory and culture surrounding those things. I’m very excited.
It’s been really fun to figure out how to podcast (the first episode is… rough) and to work with the folks who are distributing it (who I can’t name specifically yet because they’re making a big super secret deal about it).
Anyway, here’s some info, if you’re interested. Which I hope you are. If you want the direct line for Reasonably Sound info, you should follow the show account on Instagram: reasonablysnd.

This is going to be your new favorite podcast.
