The Spot: Fajitas & Scrambled Eggs

This week on KALW's showcase for the best stories from public radio podcasts and independent radio producers...

"Sizzle" produced by Katie Mingle, originally airing on 99% Invisible, January 2015.

In their latest episode, the team at 99% Invisible reminds us that if something has been constructed, even a sound, there’s a good chance someone’s probably trying to trademark it.

"Only in Dreams" produced by Whitney Jones and Alex Kapelman, originally airing on Pitch, February 2014.

The independent podcast Pitch is all about deconstructing music, and sharing the stories behind why certain songs sound the way they do. Last year, Pitch creators and hosts, Whitney Jones and Alex Kapelman, took a good hard look -- or I guess I should say "a good hard listen" -- at how our subconsciousness and our dreams can directly influence sonic masterpieces. 


This week's episode featured music from: Black Moth Super Rainbow, Architecture in Helsinki, Kid Koala, and Otis Redding.

If you have a suggestion for a podcast or an audio project we should feature, please drop us a line at thespot@kalw.org.

Tune in next week for a whole new episode of The Spot, only on KALW San Francisco.
