508 #38: The renegade blogger

posted by Mike on June 6th, 2008

508 is a show about Worcester. This week’s panel includes Brendan Melican, Scott Zoback, and Jeff Barnard.


We start by interviewing renegade blogger Marc Reece. John Wood and Karon Shea, if you want to give your side of the story you can contact us at pieandcoffee@gmail.com or leave a message at 508-471-3897. (Other listeners can drunk dial this number.)

Mike’s federal trial date is now up in the air; there’s a pre-trial hearing June 16. The Telegram & Gazette lost several reporters this week. (See Scott McLennan’s farewell column.) Charter ran no advertising in Worcester Magazine the week after WoMag ran an article critical of them; Scott Zoback comments. (John has fun trying to find someone at Charter who knows about their web monitoring plan.)

Taxi fares are going up. People are complaining about a proposed shelter on Elm Street. Jordan Levy’s blog is still kinda lame. The Grecian Festival should be awesome.
