About Brown Bag Radio

Brown Bag Radio (BBR) is modeled on the popular brown bag lunches held at larger universities worldwide. The typical BBR program includes a 20-30 minute presentation by a featured speaker geared to a PowerPoint presentation, commentary and exchange with a discussant, and a Q&A session involving the listening audience. BBR is not constrained by normal commercial broadcast schedules. The typical webcasts run 50-90 minutes, more or less, as appropriate.

Anyone interested in helping, presenting, and/or discussing is encouraged to contact us at BBR@sasia.org.
