Where the Boys Are broadcasts today at 2pm!

Hey AudioFiles fans — we hope that all of you and your loved ones are safe and dry as the East Coast begins to clean up after Sandy. If people have some spare time (something a lot of transit-strapped listeners probably have) and are near a computer at 2pm today, listen to us broadcast live on BlogTalk Radio.

As many things in your lives probably have, this show has taken a different turn than intended. Keeping with our theme of Where the Boys Are, Rachel Sapin explores the world of Brooklyn’s Italian social clubs and Tom DiChristopher talks to up and coming boxers in Brownsville. But we are adding a new twist: because many of our reporters are stranded throughout New York and elsewhere due to the transit shutdown, we will be getting live updates from around the city on the hurricane and its cleanup.

If you missed it the first time, here is the link to the BlogTalk Radio stream. Listen in at 2pm!

Listen to the show here.
