Who do you owe? Longshot Radio spent the weekend talking debt.

While you were sleeping, a bunch of public radio producers solved the debt crisis.

Just kidding.

But in a mere 48 hours, reporters with Longshot Radio spoke with over a hundred people to get different perspectives on debt and owing someone.

And believe it or not, John Boehner didn't come up all that much.A long shot

The new media experiment, Longshot Magazinehas been producing one magazine each quarter. Production, from start to finish, happens in just one weekend, with contributions coming in from all over the world.

This time, radio got in on what had previously been a print-only party.

This Innovation Trail reporter joined the main operation New York City, which had help from a dream team of contributors, including WNYC's Jody Avirganand Alex Goldmark, and Radiolab's Pat Walters.

We heard about pool rooms, baggage scams, sibling relations, and a whole lot of college loans.

You can watch how the project came together.

Or you can take a listen.

Former WRVO/Central New York reporter for the Innovation Trail.
