Broadcast radio and digital audio aren’t easy unless you’re taking the easy way out, and for a technology-rich sector like ours, new tech can readily offer that. So, in this issue, we shine a light on those taking on what is difficult.
We visit Malawi, where radio broadcasters are telling the stories of people living on dumpsites; revisit Radio Caroline, an iconic British radio station with remarkable struggle credentials; learn how Kenya is tackling an overcrowded FM spectrum; and meet a Canadian podcaster telling stories the “hard” way — with less of a human voice.
Our cover story features a rising star in German radio who is not afraid of a fight, and we also tell the story of a Danish broadcaster scaling down in size to punch above its weight.
AI gets a look in, of course, but we learn how it’s a double-edged sword, and Graham Dixon prompts us to ask ourselves uncomfortable questions about trust.
