Our influences are many. Tomcast , Superego , Slate's Culture Gabfest. We're also fans of some of the further afield podcasts and found audio, like C. Ross Simonini a fellow editor of the Believer and I did most of the heavy lifting of developing and producing the first episode, with essential input and support from the rest of the staff of the Believer and McSweeney's.
One of the first stories we accepted was Jenna Weiss-Berman's piece on sound design in the film Nobody Walks , and as we worked with her on the piece, she began consulting and helping out on other parts of the podcast. Her great ideas, sharp ears, and hard-core radio-nerd knowledge of things like tape synchs and radio listservs convinced us she should be on the masthead as an associate producer. The biggest challenges and surprises along the way will probably be old news to the average radio-savvy denizen of the Third Coast library: we had to teach ourselves all the audio-production basics, learning as we go.
Mic placement! The "grabber" tool! And of course these technical challenges all came heaped atop that hoary, immutable challenge of bridging the divide between the dream-show we imagined and what we actually produced.

When we first started out, we were hell-bent on sounding nothing like any of the above-mentioned, dearly beloved podcasts and radio shows. The problem with this approach is, in order to sound nothing like those shows, most of which have been hammering away for years at the question of how to most compellingly tell a story on the radio, you end up sounding abstract, opaque, and insane.
Instead of a podcast, you end up with a floating, weird-smelling orb. So we had to remind ourselves that the Believer , for all its eccentricities, is still a relatively straightforward periodical: the words appear in the right order, the articles have headlines and subheads, there's a table of contents.
So we took the pulsating stank-globe we'd created and ironed it out into a podcast where you have some idea of what it is you're hearing, and why you should care. And hopefully where the stories have the same impact, intelligence, and appeal that those in the print magazine do. The Organist takes an omnivorous interest in arts and culture, beginning with books and films and records and expanding outward to politics, religion, science, and so on. And that interest takes a variety of forms, not merely essays or reviews. So we can jump from a straightforward interview with a celebrated author Saunders to an absurdist, fictional etymology of the word "podcast" Offerman , from radically constrained music criticism Stosuy to an oral history of a woman's defection from the Jehovah's Witness Scorah.
The Organist podcast
The first thing we recorded was Nick Offerman's open, and it remains my favorite. The text was written by the excellent short-story writer Kevin Moffett.
I've listened to it fifty-seven times now, and it still folds the creases of my brow into novel configurations. It's true that we're doing everything we can to make the actual Organist resemble the chimerical Organist of our dreams.

I'd like to figure out a way to include drama and more fictional elements in a way that doesn't undermine the seriousness of the reported pieces, and that doesn't sound wooden and hokey. Radio drama, we've found, is deceptively difficult to pull off -- it's so easy for everything fictional on the radio to turn to instant cheese in your ears. But I want it.
We would love to be buried in submissions. Right now the submissions are coming in more of a fine mist -- make it rain, Third Coast readers!

Though we do have a hotline we haven't yet figured out what to do with: I'm hoping we get some good rambling voicemails, at any rate. Call today: The main submission guidelines are: the piece shouldn't have appeared anywhere else unless that anywhere else is your blog, I guess, or your mom's backyard. More importantly: it should spark our curiosity, make us think, and, when we hear it, make us chortle with desperate glee.
