Podcast Shakeup

Lots of changes are coming to the ARRL lineup of audio programs in the New Year:

Heading up the new schedule will be a free companion podcast to the bimonthly On the Air magazine. The “On the Air” podcast will take a deeper look into select features and projects from the magazine. Each month, host and On the Air Editorial Director Becky Schoenfeld, W1BXY, will offer additional resources, techniques, and hints to help less-experienced radio amateurs to get the most from the magazine’s content.

The bad news in all this is that The Doctor is In podcast is being retired. This was a best of class ham radio program and about the only content suitable for more seasoned radio amateurs. It’s being replaced with “Eclectic Tech,” a new bi-weekly podcast designed to appeal to experienced amateurs that will launch in February 2020.

The ARRL in retiring The Doctor Is In, may be falling for a group-think echo chamber measure of the waters – the same circular opinion taking that has lead them astray before.

Is it as bad as the teenager logic circles of a Beavis & Butthead episode? Perhaps not so much, but not so far off either.

Lacking an accessible series of pilots show for the replacement, it is hard to measure what is good sense and what is disjunct.
