Over the next few episodes of Calls for Justice, you’ll hear stories from the people who worked on the project, from creating the concept to painting the booth.
Kevin Rinker is a podcast producer at WABE as well as a co-creator of the Calls for Justice project and payphone recording booth.
Calls for Justice is an interactive podcast experiment, inspired by the intent of the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967: to provide and extend a platform for education and innovation through a diversity of voices and programming that reflect and serve the public.
As a way of questioning justice in media, Calls for Justice democratizes both voice and ownership of the podcast, aiming to interrogate barriers in media such as gatekeeping and power hoarding; lack of ownership; discrimination; and access to resources.
