mediageek 2009-12-31: The Final Mediageek Radioshow

We finish the year and the decade with the very last edition of mediageek. John Anderson of DIYmedia.net, the most frequent guest on the program, joins Paul in the studio for the send-off. There are a lot of thanks, some consideration the growth of the media democracy movement and John makes Paul reflect on the short history of the radio program.

This 30 minute syndicated version of the program is edited down from the live version which ran well over an hour on New Year’s Eve. The full (mostly) unedited version of the program will be posted next week.
