Today, we join an esteemed and eccentric group of producers in launching Radiotopia from PRX. Radiotopia is a gathering of the best story-driven, creative, cutting-edge radio shows on earth — shows like 99% Invisible, The Truth, Strangers, Theory of Everything, Love and Radio, Radio Diaries and our new project, Fugitive Waves. Producers Roman Mars, Jonathan Mitchell, Lea Thau, Benjamin Walker, Nick van der Kolk, Joe Richman and The Kitchen Sisters have banded together with PRX to create this new experiment in storytelling.
Fugitive Waves — Lost recordings and shards of sound, along with new tales of remarkable people from around the world. Stories from the flip side of history. To kick things off, we’re mining the archive. Here’s a story from our Lost & Found Sound series, an epic collaboration we produced with Jay Allison, NPR and thousands of listeners around the nation — The Rise and Fall and Rise and Fall and Rise of Thomas Alva Edison.
Radiotopia from PRX is made possible with support from the Knight Foundation, and our launch sponsor, MailChimp, who celebrate creativity, chaos, and teamwork. It’s so rare to see someone celebrate chaos. Chaos, creativity and teamwork. Sounds like The Kitchen Sisters.
