Got an email yesterday that turned out to be spam or hoax, but at first looked like I had scored big. It was from Jeffrey Walker, executive producer at Voice America Talk Radio Network.
At first I thought he meant he was from Voice Of America, a US-govt-run radio network that grew during World War II as a counter to Nazi propoganda in Europe and Latin America. After the war it broadcast western news into the Soviet Union and Soviet-occupied Europe. In Cold War terms, "behind the Iron Curtain." .
Today it operates in 45 languages, and broadcasts via satellite and on FM, AM, and shortwave radio frequencies. It is also available through the Internet in both streaming media and downloadable formats at voanews.com
Anyway, I just wanted to put this out there. If you're a podcaster and you get an email from this outfit, they should be disclaiming upfront that they have nothing to do with the Voice of America. Pretty sure they got my email address by scraping BlogTalkRadio, which has a much more legitimate claim, imho, at being "The World Leader in Live Internet Talk Radio."
