Your Phone is Your Mic: Stories and Sounds Shared Over the Phone – Laura Kwerel, Walker Mettling & Dial-A-Stranger

Using the telephone to peek into private lives: why and how. Part instruction manual, part listening party, four presenters let you in on the intimacy (and sometimes cruelty) of using Ma Bell as your mic.
