Podcast promotion in the wild

Spilling the T

Podnews reader Troy spotted this while waiting for his train. The show, called Spilling the T, focuses on “the T”, Boston’s MBTA transport system, and covers infrastructure upgrades, service disruptions, safety measures, and everything in between. We admire the puns - the use of “platform” while being shown on a platform, and the dual-meaning of the “T” and some minor disagreement about the taxing of tea in 1773 in the “hahbah”. C’mon, Bostonians, get over it already.
