On our latest episode of the Oral History of the Blogosphere, Pulitzer prize winner Joe Sonka of the Louisville Courier-Journal joined me to chronicle the gone-but-only-mostly-forgotten Bluegrass Blogosphere. We talk through some of the history of the local political blogosphere, then develop some thoughts about the broader constellation of local blogospheres (most of which are now gone). We discuss professionalization, revenue, archives, and of course the Kentucky Creation Museum and whether or not there were dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark.
