Rick Popp on How Cable Television Came to Manhattan

In this installment of the Distribution Matters podcast, Rick Popp talks to co-host Josh Braun about how the built environment of 1960s Manhattan intersected with its political culture to shape the rollout of one of America’s first major urban cable television systems.

Co-hosts Lucy Martirosyan and Jessica Eklund were on break as this was recorded, but will return in future installments. Special thanks to Lucy for production help.

This episode’s theme music is “Six Weeks to Live,” cc by nc 3.0 Josh Spacek.
