This 30-minute programme is Part 2 of a two-parter about creativity on the internet. Part 1 aired last week on the 17th of November, Friday, with a teaser to tune in this week for Part 2, featuring, amongst others, the mrbrown show.
Their researcher and producers stumbled upon our little podcast in their research for the programme, and wanted to chat with us about the podcasts, which they told us they enjoyed very much.
Popagandhi, Ruby and I spoke to Emily Kasriel from their London studio over an ISDN line from their Singapore bureau's mini studio. After a few hiccups trying to get the ISDN line connected, we finally heard, "Hello, this is London." I still cannot get over the retro mixers made of wood.
You can tune in to the BBC at 88.9FM, or you can listen to Close Up online at its BBC page from the 24th of November till next Friday, the 1st of December 2006.
Just click on the icon on the top left of that page, the one with the triangle and the word "audio" in it.
One word of warning, the online edition requires you to have (wait for it, wait for it... aaaaaarrgh!) Realplayer.
Oh wait, I saw they just added the Download button on the right sidebar too, so you CAN get an mp3 version too. Go listen to it, it's good stuff, and I'm not just saying it because the mrbrown show is in it.
The internet has changed every aspect of our lives - the way we shop and work, how we communicate and learn about the world. But hidden from the headlines another revolution is underway.
In this two part series presented by Emily Kasriel, we find out how the internet is unleashing a volume of creativity on a scale we have never seen before.
In this week's programme, as consumers become the producers we talk to some of the ordinary people who have risen to fame and whose creative talents have earned them all captive online audiences.
We hear from Singaporean podcasters, animators from Boston, a Shanghai filmmaker and an Icelandic photographer who tell us what the internet has done for their careers. That's all on this week's Close Up on BBC World Service.
