Eva Tang Hsiang-yi, from National Cheng Chi University in Taiwan, presented a paper at AMIC 2008, Conference on Convergence, Citizen Journalism & Social Change : Building Capacity held at University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia, March 25 to 27, 2008.
This paper examines the production of podcast by a Singaporean blogger Mr. Brown, who has been utilizing the outcome of a technological convergence — podcast, in a most creative way to express his political views. By his own unique style of satire, he has survived in this island state’s closely regulated Internet sphere. It remains to be seen, however, whether Mr. Brown’s citizen journalism can point to a way for alternative media in Singapore.

Just to clarify, the shows would not be possible without the team behind it.
Thanks and I hope you got an A-plus for your paper, Eva (do they give those out on papers? Sorry, I is not a academic). I am impressed you plowed through so many of our shows, and even transcribed some of them!
