Welcome to Intern Edition Spring 2005
A Message from Executive Producer Laura Bissett Weiss
"When Worlds Collide"
What happens when punk rock and Kentucky collide? Or when Michael Moore finds himself in the middle of Utah?
In this semester's Intern Edition, we decided to find out what happens when unexpected worlds collide, and the result is a rich and eclectic tapestry of pieces.
You can listen to the entire show or, if you don't have a lot of time, you can take it one bite (or piece) at a time.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this semester's Intern Edition possible. And thanks to you for visiting our site. I look forward to hearing what you think of the show!

Interns Mac Henry and Molly Samuel headed to Philadelphia today to collect sound and interviews for Henry's Intern Edition piece about alley cat racing. Alley cats are bike messenger races that imitate a messenger's regular work-- they are given a manifest of stops and then go as fast as they can to each, gathering a signature or other authentication at each. In this race, messengers went to seven different bars, collecting a playing card from each. The rider with the best hand after two hours won the race, though there were prizes for a variety of other categories: first finished, last finished, best out of town rider.
Mac and Molly hung out at the start and at one of the stops, and made a brief appearance at the after-party/awards ceremony. They learned a lot about Philly's messenger scene, met some cool people, looked at gorgeous track bikes, and generally enjoyed themselves in the city of brotherly love.
