Podcasting Recovery

The Recovery Radio Network Podcast has been well received within the recovery community and, is proving to be very popular with people. The amount of web traffic to this site has been amazing. In our first week of operation we have already had to double our committment for bandwidth and storage because of the demand!

We have been busy loading up some new titles on the Recovery Radio Podcasting site for your enjoyment. New speakers from AA and Al-Anon bring us personal stories of recovery, a doctor talks about the disease concept of alcoholism and, there is even a little bit of AA history. In the near future we will be bringing you stories from young people in recovery, as well as ,the Joe and Charlie 12 step workshop, and a Mary Pearl Retreat for women. RRN is currently working on getting these projects in podcast format and expects to begin broadcasting them shortly.

We have been gratified by the response from our listeners who have either left us comments,  or e-mailed us with suggestions. Please keep those “cards and letters” coming! We love to hear from recovering folks and are always open to new ideas.

Podcasts come to RRN

     Finally, we have started podcasting here at Recovery Radio Network. Look under our Blogroll  listings on the right side of this page and you will see a couple different links for RRN. The streaming media link takes you to our traditional website, where you will find all sorts of speakers and workshops available for “on demand” listening, using the mp3 player of your choice, or our built in Flash player.

    The RRN Podcast link, will take you to our new site where, in addition to listening to audio using the built-in flash player, you may also download the various episodes and play them on your portable audio player.  Since this site is new, the selection of audio files is currently limited but, we will be adding new files to the site regularly so, check back often.

    In addition to downloading Podcast episodes, you may create written comments about the speakers, share the episodes with friends, or link directly to the audio files, all from within our Podcast page. You may also become a subscriber  to the RRN podcast so that when we release new episodes you will automatically get them. Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Hi Folks!

Welcome to the new home for the Recovery Radio Network!  Things are changing here at the station as you probably noticed when you logged in and didn’t see the “old” intro animation and, were instead, directed to this page. Rest assured that all the audio content you have come to know and love is still here.The link to the Radio station is on the right side of this page under the “Blogroll” section labeled “Recovery Radio Network”, or, just click here.

This is our first attempt at real time communication with our community,so, please let us know what is on your minds, and how we may improve our service to you.

 The recovery Radio Network runs on a shoestring budget and has no paid staff so, this “real-time” thing will more probably turn into the “part-time” or “occasional” thing but every attempt will be made to keep the conversation going.

Thanks for your support and understanding during this time of change in our lives.        We are in the process of making changes to the radio station and to the website. Changes that we think will improve the way we deliver content to the many people relying on us to carry the message. Please let us know how we are doing.

Since our inception 5 years ago, we have served over 100,000 audio streams to people in more than 120 countries and the demand keeps growing.  Currently we are serving over 2,500 audio streams per month, and have over 4,000 visitors per month to the website. As you might imagine, this increased demand requires us to make some improvments in how we deliver content. I hope you like it!
