The Spreaker year in recap: remembering 2011 through your podcasts

0

This Saturday we’ll pop the champagne and ring in 2012 with enthusiasm and hope (that the world won’t end on 12/12/12). Yet, in order to go forward, we’ll first need to look back, and 2011 has been quite an incredible year. It will be remembered in history for its recession, revolutions, erratic pop stars, and even crazier weather.

Throughout it all, Spreaker users have been ready at their microphones broadcasting calls for action and to come together, to get through it all for better or for worse. You’ve started up dialogues, got people to listen, and been passionate about causes going on all over the world. The year has been reflected in our content, so let’s take a look at how exactly 2011 went down:

Nothing like a revolution to bring about a little excitement. People all over the world have demanded change from their governments and society. A wave of different but similar movements swept across the globe.

We witnessed an Arab Spring with the now defunct Misurata Radio, a Libyan podcast that gave a voice to a country feeling oppressed and censored. At its height, the podcast gave solace to fellow protestors.

The Indignados in Spain were represented by Explícalo, Blogoff.es‘ weekly podcasts on various topics. Young protesters participated in talks regarding both revolution and culture.

Back in the States, Occupy Wall Street grew and was not confined to New York. Santa Cruz had it’s own voice speaking for the 99% through The Commander X Show.

Political change came with different leaders, as well. The presidential race in the United States is hot, with new candidates prepping for the match. We had our own excitement here when back in September The Angel Clark Show interviewed New Mexico Governor and former Republican Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson (now Libertarian).

Students brought their passions to podcasts. Take for instance uRadio, where the energy of the students at the University of Siena in Italy have built up their own, diverse community. Different hosts hold open forums on music, languages, and culture.

Of course, a historical year is also manifested in the art made during it, and Spreaker was chock full of podcasts all about art and cultural events.

Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge, England houses great pieces of modern and contemporary art. Their podcast Lunchtime Talks at Kettle’s Yard gives contemporary art lovers a place to analyze and discuss masterpieces.

Roma Radio Art Fair is a non-profit dedicated to arts aiming to communicate and experimentat. From the 5th to the 8th of May 2011 the podcast broadcasted Sound Art productions, conversations and sound landscapes, and electronic research.

Sounds like Venice 2011 broadcasted live from the heart of the 54th International Venice Biennial. Listeners could tune into critiques and explanations of great works and what they mean in today’s society and culture.

So we bid farewell to 2011 with perhaps a black and blue or two, but ready to take on 2012, Mayan apocalypse and all. Happy New Year everyone!
