World News, Politics and Indie Electronica. News Radio Electronica was a one time pet project of journalism student and musician Jared Rusk. The 6 episode podcast covered some significant breaking news including the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq, the acceleration of the Ukrainian civil war and the 2014 midterm elections. Think of it as a groovy time-capsule to the sociopolitical drama on the late 2014 world-stage. It was also fairly easy on the ears.
