Tammy Terwelp http://wesa.fm en Writing on the Floor http://wesa.fm/post/writing-floor <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The inaugural non-90.5 </span>WESA<span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;cool podcast comes from </span>Pittsburgher<span style="line-height: 1.5;">, Zach Simons. Zach produces <strong><a href="http://writingonthefloor.com/">Writing on the Floor</a></strong>, self-described as "</span><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 23px;">... a show dedicated exploring anyone who is doing anything interesting or creative in life. We want to showcase people who are worth talking to… people who are trying to make the world better on some way." </span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 23px;">Zach has a regular-person job but he truly has a public radio soul. He works late at night in a closet for free and strikes me as a Cheetos guy. He scores interviews with creative and influential people in our city and gets them talking. </span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 23px;">Recent guests include the Mayor, WQED's Deb Acklin, Tedx Grandview supernova, Kacey&nbsp;Wherley and&nbsp;</span><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 23px;">Dr. Matt Lamanna, Paleontologist and Assistant Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology at The Carnegie Museum. &nbsp;See? &nbsp;I told you Zach was pub radio.&nbsp;</span></p><p></p><p><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 23px;">He also does a lot of amazing things with </span><a href="http://arcadecomedytheater.com/" style="font-family: helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 23px;">Arcade Comedy Theatre</a><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 23px;"> - recording their shows, doing his podcast from the stage. &nbsp;It really is cool.&nbsp;</span><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 23px;">Check it out </span><strong style="line-height: 1.5;"><a href="http://writingonthefloor.libsyn.com/rss" style="font-family: helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 23px;">here</a></strong><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; line-height: 23px;">.</span></p><p>This podcast was recommended by Twitter user <a href="https://twitter.com/dantregembo">@dantregembo</a>. &nbsp;Have a suggestion? &nbsp;Hit me up <a href="https://twitter.com/wesatammy">@wesatammy</a>.</p><p> Fri, 30 May 2014 20:50:10 +0000 Tammy Terwelp 30122 at http://wesa.fm Writing on the Floor Social Club http://wesa.fm/post/social-club <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The first suggested cool podcast is our newest, Social Club. &nbsp;Well, not exactly new - Rachel and Josh have done this before but only on-air. &nbsp;Josh is our own Morning Edition host, </span><a href="http://wesa.fm/people/josh-raulerson" style="line-height: 1.5;">Josh Raulerson</a><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and </span><a href="http://www.whirlmagazine.com/star-worthy-style/" style="line-height: 1.5;">Rachel Carlson&nbsp;</a><span style="line-height: 1.5;">is the muscle behind the Pittsburgh </span><a href="http://www.yelp.com/pittsburgh" style="line-height: 1.5;">Yelp </a><span style="line-height: 1.5;">arm.
