Radio Spin

A podcast written by D.A. Kennedy

Radio Spin is a 6-episode satirical podcast series, written by Gold Coast local, D.A. Kennedy and produced by The Drama Merchant.

Set in a fictional location called Spin City. Radio Spin is a station, run by amateurs, and devoted to the individual’s right to free expression; no matter what that expression happens to be. Listeners tuning in think it’s a Coast station and their Coast listeners think it’s a city station, but most people think of it as the audio equivalent to Bris31 when you manage to tune into it.

 

In this first episode you will hear local news about Orifice Awareness Month, International Fake news and the M.O.P. report; where The Man of the People interviews playwright, academic and self-confessed thought- smith Colin Craftsman on his seminal 6 hr stage play "Picnic" and new book "Agatha Christie: The crime queen who didn't dun it"
