Aural Intimacy

Radio is the most intimate of the mass media vehicles, what used to be called “broadcasting,” as in “casting ideas abroad.” So, when the most intimate interviews invite a person in and speak to one’s ears and heart, they settle into a deep place. From there, it’s hard to see the diverse sides of an interviewer’s nature.
Maybe that’s how it is with close friends and neighbours who turn out to be quite different from whom we thought they were. We continue to treasure who we thought they were.
