Tech tAUk Reloaded #8: Shutdown or Shut Up

Tech tAUk Reloaded

Tech tAUk returns to the scene of the crime! Doug and Josh reunite to record an in-person episode of Tech tAUk Reloaded at the ATV studio at American University, where the classic Tech tAUk was filmed over four TV seasons. We’re also both in Washington, DC, a city reeling from the ongoing government shutdown, which becomes a central topic of the episode. And we’re joined by another of our former Tech tAUkers, Mike Silangil.

About Douglas Bell

I live in Washington, D.C., and work as a Broadcast Technician at WAMU 88.5 FM, the local NPR affiliate in the Washington metro area. My primary shift is to engineer the local feed of NPR’s Morning Edition, including local news and weather, long-form features and station breaks… and yes, the shift starts at 5 am, so I’ve got the whole quasi-nocturnal thing going on. I am also the Coordinating Producer for Ken Rudin’s Political Junkie, an independently-produced podcast and public radio program. Extracurricularly, I play cello, and participate in a church choir and a handbell choir. I enjoy discovering new places, and am constantly searching for the perfect cheeseburger. I am also known as a frequent teller of puns.
