Rock Hall Nominees, What Is 'Rock' Anyway?

[Nick Castele / ideastream]

We’re trying a new podcast.

We want to bring you in-depth conversations about news, culture, health and politics in Northeast Ohio.

It might sound more casual than you’d hear on the radio. And we’ll spend more time with reporters and producers to share insights and information that didn’t make it into the final story.

Our first talk is with ideastream senior arts reporter David C. Barnett about the latest Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees. But it’s also about what “rock” is, and who gets to decide.

Listen to that conversation above. You can read David’s story about the nominees here.

Nick Castele was a senior reporter covering politics and government for Ideastream Public Media. He worked as a reporter for Ideastream from 2012-2022.
