CPN features stories on arts and culture, interviews with news-makers, lectures and public forums, theater previews and more. We also podcast local radio programs such as WREN’s Sunday Morning Wake-Up Call. Through a combination of original productions and partnerships with local organizations, CPN has provided thousands of hours of audio programming since it launched.

“Podcasting is a transition medium, meaning, it’s a temporary thing that will continue to change as the Web matures into something a bit more manageable,” Tubbs wrote to a journalist in 2006.
“I’ve entered into this stuff because I wanted to create great programming, original programming, and podcasting offers me a chance to take risks I can’t take in actual radio. My aim is to use podcasting as a way to drive grass roots attention back to the foundations of why public radio was founded in the first place,” said Tubbs.
In January 2014 stewardship of CPN passed to long-time podcaster Dan Gould. Dan has a background in community-based radio and has produced over 1000 feature length podcasts for the site.
