BURNAWAY Radio now sponsors Out There Atlanta, by Lilly Lampe. Out There Atlanta is a podcast and online platform for interviews with artists. The intention to create a archive of conversational interviews with artists in Atlanta, or with an Atlanta connection. These conversations are informal and conducted in the spirit of a coffee meet-up. Out There Atlanta fills the gap between formal studio visits and event-related coverage and exists as a place for a more relaxed and personal dialogue, allowing artists to get a little more “out there” with the online audience.
