A frank discussion about Twin Cities media
TD Mischke is the fugitive from broadcast radio, regarding the industry with a wary eye. Brauer is the longtime media observer, author of BrauBlog and @dbrauer, who provides a candid view of the media landscape.
Advance warning: This is a 45 minute deep-dive interview, and is not to be undertaken until you are ready to engage your critical faculties and listen to two masters of the craft swap stories. If you have a sauna, I highly recommend you download it on iTunes.
