ctrp334 New Media in Tomsk

flattr this!

When you wander around the streets of Tomsk in Siberia, you may think the place looks a little behind the times. But beneath the surface there are in fact new and creative ideas in the world of new media taking root. In this particular podcast we hear from a videoblogging priest about why he uses the internet as a tool in his community, and how some young DJ’s have turned to internet radio as their main stage for playing music. (special bonus at the end, me ringing the church bells, I apologize in advance to your ears.)

    Hi Mark!

    I have got myslef in to quite substancial backlog of podcasts waiting for personal digestion…
    Your Russian reports are great – just started to listen to those yesterday…

    Are you planning on doing any audio material about recent polish airplane crash? I would love to hear some citizen journalism done on that topic as there is a lot of mixed reports from lamestream media…

    keep up great work
