"I wanted to talk to the Shortwave Collective because they are presenting a radically different vision of what radio is and can be. Radio’s history can be thought of as an extended expression of military, political, commercial, and cultural dominance. But the Collective embraces play, experimentation, failure, community, and open listening in their feminist radio practice. So, let’s talk to the Shortwave Collective and see if we can rethink radio–what it’s for and what it can do." - Mack Hagood
In October 2022, we were on the Phantom Power podcast, for an episode called '(Re)Making Radio with Shortwave Collective'! Host Mack Hagood brought us on deck to talk about our history as a collective, and then featured the Open-Wave Reciever audio piece. You can listen on the Phantom Power site, or right here on our site (scroll to the bottom).
