We interview Shawn Ewald, programmer and volunteer behind the A-Infos Radio Project. The project has been serving an archive of independently produced and shared radio programming since 1996 -- before most of the world had heard of "mp3." Ewald recently opened up the source of the softward that runs the Project so that others may also use or improve it.

The mediageek radioshow is a weekly critical look at our media environment, with a focus on independent media and the people who make it.
