It started as our slogan: "Dastardly Cleverness in the Service of Good." That became the title for our independent podcast. That podcast led to the NewDEAL Leaders asking us to produce theirs, and now podcast production is one of our content services. It turns out to be a great use of all that time Spencer spent in radio, contributing to the CBC, NPR, and PRI!
