Seth Resler Launches Occupy The Airwaves
October 17, 2011 at 9:46 AM (PT)
Former BROWN BROADCASTING Alternative WBRU/PROVIDENCE PD SETH RESLER has started the OCCUPY THE AIRWAVES podcast to find out who the people behind the OCCUPY WALL STREET movement really are. On SATURDAY (10/15), RESLER grabbed his mic and headed up to SAN FRANCISCO, where the OCCUPYSF contingent was organizing a huge march.
RESLER explained, "I didn't know exactly what to expect -- I had never been part of a political protest before -- but I found an extremely positive group of people joining together for a common cause. The bottom line is that I empathize with the people in this movement, I had been looking for a way that I could effectively support them with my skillset, and a podcast seemed to make the most sense. So on SATURDAY, I took my mic up and started talking to people."
RESLER is looking for other broadcasters around the country who are interested in going out and recording interviews with participants in the movement. He noted, "My goal is to attach real faces to the movement, and to give them a real voice that can be heard."
