BBC Radio 1′s Burning Man Experience

January 27th, 2010  |  Filed under Culture (Art & Music)

BBC's Bobby FrictionThe UK’s BBC Radio 1 got brave, and sent Bobby Friction, one of their on-air DJs, across the pond to attend Burning Man for the first time in 2009, and to record his experience along the way. It’s fun to ride along with Bobby as he’s transfixed and transformed by the playa, Black Rock City, and Burners, while learning what Burning Man is all about.

You can listen to his podcast here.  (Note: it contains language that might offend some listeners.)

    Can you change the link to not include facebook in the url?

    It should be:

    Nice! However, I would recommend trimming out the facebook redirect stuff at the beginning of the real link.

    It really hit home when he started to talk about not getting a cell signal to talk to his wife and making him very sad…The same thing happened to me,first time I was ever away from her. I only stayed at BM for 3 days because of it….but will return in 2011 with a better understanding of myself!

    For a man who makes his living with his wit and words, it was delightful to see him at a loss for them both at the end. Like his bump-set-spike had been deflated, leaving only an honest man, at peace with his own nature and glowing radiantly because of it.
