Everything Public Media, in One Place


Why This Exists

I currently subscribe to three public media Facebook groups, several listservs, read several blogs, and try to follow hashtags on Twitter — and still miss really important public media stuff. (And I'm sure there are walled gardens I'm not a member of or not even aware of...)

So I'm taking a cue from a really smart idea in the tech world: to use Github to make lists of all of the awesome public media resources, in one place.


This page is written in a language called markdown. Links should be submitted as follows:

* [Title of Content](link to content) - description of content

Anyone can add to this list. To add to the list,

  1. Click the fork button, which you'll find on the top right corner of this page.
  2. In blue, you should now see your username / PublicMedia, then underneath, that it was forked from melodykramer. You're now ready to edit your own version of PublicMedia, which you will merge into the original once your edits are finished.
  3. You should see a link in blue a little ways down that says README.md. Click that link.
  4. On the right side of the page, you should now see small icons in a horizontal row: a monitor, a pencil, and a trash. Click on the pencil to edit the page.
  5. Make your changes in the file. Be sure to follow the syntax formatting that already exists. It's in a language called Markdown, and syntax consistancy across the file will make the final product easy to read.
  6. Scroll down once you're finished with your edits. At the bottom of the page, there's a place to leave a comment about what you've done. This is optional.
  7. Click "Commit directly to the Master branch." (Remember, this is still your version, not the original.)
  8. When you go back to the main page for your version of PublicMedia, underneath the green button, you should see a little gray line that says the branch is some number of commits ahead of melodykramer:master. Directly right of that line, click the button for Pull Request.
  9. Review your edits, and when they are ready, create your pull request.

(detailed instructions for newcomers here.)







  • KALW invited Daniel Handler — aka Lemony Snicket — into the studio during a pledge drive, told him to mention their number a few times and let him loose. The result? People were calling the station begging to go back to pledge breaks.
  • WNYC's Pledge Drive Videos
  • WMRA Warp Speed Fundraising WMRA (in Harrisonburg, VA) had messages during breaks to ask its members to give ahead of the fund drive week so no programs would have to be interrupted. It worked, they raised $200,000, and now they have regular messages on-air and online (such as "Support WMRA today: if we can reach $75,000 by June 9th, we won't have to interrupt any programs!") to remind listeners to give by a certain date to prevent needing a "normal" drive.
