Philadelphia-based DJ Diplo calls his recent podcasting project, Mad Decent Radio, a sort of "NPR for the streets" — a collection of local music and interviews from cities on his tour.

Madeleine Brand talks with the DJ about the episodes he made while in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, and on his visit to New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
