    Hi, Rob. I don’t work in radio. I work for a local news website. I just wanted to let you know I discovered your podcast over a year ago and I’ve found it invaluable as a storyteller.

    In the new media landscape I find myself tinkering with all manner of things, and you’ve really helped me figure out how to tell stories with sound. So there’s on automatic re-subscribe for you.

    OK, wierd story. In August a couple of years ago I decide to take the Downeaster from Boston to “discover” Portland. It’s a great summer day, I’m just trolling through the waterfront and all of the side and cross streets and I come across this great sign hanging above an office. “The Salt Institute for Documentary Studies”. It is a great hand-carved sign, obviously commissioned and designed with care. I think these must be interesting people. But the door is locked and the sign on the door says “we are closed”, as in gone. I think there were dropoff instructions for UPS and mail. I’m thinking I have to see what these people were all about. Enquiring minds want to know. I take a picture of the sign hanging above the door. Of course now I can’t find it.

    But I found you, living on WBUR in Boston, late at night on PRXRemix. A chance encounter with a sign makes me glad I found the broadcasts. Keep up the good work. I hope someone went back to save the sign.

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for writing. The Salt Institute still exists. It moved to 561 Congress Street, a few blocks from the location you originally stumbled upon a few years ago. I don’t know if the sign you speak of still exists but you could contact Salt to find out. Their website is FYI, the Saltcast still exists just in new form — has so for a year and a half. It’s now HowSound and can be found at I hope you can listen to that podcast as well.
