We want to hear from you...

Posted at 16:30 /blog/news [link [Bookmark Link]]

When we first conceived The WildeBeat, we wanted a big part of it to be listener participation. Thanks to those of you who sent us some good ideas. But we really want to encourage a lot more.

As an experiment, we'd like to launch a second podcast feed. This second feed, as yet unnamed, will consist almost exclusively of listener-contributions of news and ideas that you leave on our comment line, or e-mail to us as audio or text files. (Please see our contribute page for help on commenting by e-mail.) Shows based on these contributions will be published irregularly, whenever we collect at least a couple of minutes of usable content, or whenever that content contains important breaking news.

We need to hear from you!

Contribution ideas:

  1. Tell us about your favorite, under-appreciated, wilderness or backcountry area.
  2. Solicit volunteers for an organization that helps people discover wilderness recreation.
  3. Announce an outing or other activity your club or group is sponsoring.
  4. Tell us about a special outdoors skill you have or wish to develop.
  5. Provide news about conditions or issues relating to one of your local backcountry or wilderness areas.
  6. Add to, comment on, or correct anything you hear on our shows.

We're interested in any comments you'd like to make about the WildeBeat, or about wilderness areas or activities. When we have enough listener-contributed material, we'll announce the new feed.
