Spreadable Media:CREATING VALUE AND MEANING IN A NETWORKED CULTURE"

Host Lisa Loving speaks with Henry Jenkins and Sam Ford about their book "Spreadable Media:CREATING VALUE AND MEANING IN A NETWORKED CULTURE," which argues: If it doesn’t spread, it’s dead.

Their book challenges some of the prevailing metaphors and frameworks used to describe contemporary media, from biological metaphors like “memes” and “viral” to the concept of “Web 2.0” and the popular notion of “influencers.” "Spreadable Media" examines the nature of audience engagement,the environment of participation, the way appraisal creates value, and the transnational flows at the heart of these phenomena.

What makes content more spreadable? Why should there be a change from “hearing” to “listening” in corporate culture?

TriMet: Who is the transit agency working for?

TriMet used to be considered a great transit system with short wait times, colorful bus stops and friendly drivers, but in recent years fares have been raised so often, and service has been cut so much, that taking the bus has become unaffordable and inconvenient. How unaffordable and inconvenient depends on who you are and where you live. As Portland is getting increasingly gentrified, more and more low income people are moving to the outskirts of town, where buses come much less often. Meanwhile TriMet is heavily investing in building MAX and streetcar lines in the center of town, which is becoming more accessible all the time.  KBOO’s Jennifer Kemp, with help from FSRN reporter Eric Klein, hit the buses to see what the riders really thought of TriMet.

Hollywood Theatre EcoFilm Festival; Asian pears; what's going on in the honey bee hive

Something a little different this month on The Dirtbag as Dawn Smallman and Doug Whyte from the Hollywood Theatre join host Glen Andresen to talk about the upcoming Portland EcoFilm Festival. Some of the subjects of the films include soil, fruit, and honey...subjects near and dear to Glen, guest Jim Gilbert, and Dirtbag listeners.

As usual, there will be a new Garden Stumper quiz (and EcoFilm Festival tickets to the winner!); the Plant of the Month--Asian pears, now in full bloom; what's going on in the honey bee hive this month; and answers to your garden questions.

The Dirtbag... Listen. Laugh. Learn.
