Scouting Radio (scoutingradio.com) is not affiliated with BSA, but it’s a great resource for connecting Scouts to peers throughout the international community. We asked founder and station manager Justin Dawson of Ireland to chat about this Internet radio gem.


SCOUTING: You’ve got quite a family history of Scouting, don’t you? JUSTIN DAWSON: I’ve been an avid Scout since I was a Beaver at 6 years old, and Scouting’s been in my family for generations. When he was 8, one of my uncles actually met Baden-Powell at the 1939 World Jamboree in Holland. Currently, I’m a Cub Scout leader with 25th Dublin Mount Merrion Group with Scouting Ireland.


SCOUTING: How did Scouting Radio get started? J.D.: At college, I was studying media production and management. We had to do a large project in one of the classes. The result was a life-changing challenge.


SCOUTING: Describe your programming for someone who hasn’t checked you out. J.D.: Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, we really run the gamut all the way from serious histori- cal pieces about Scouts in World War II to questions we ask listeners like, “What’s the silliest prank you ever played on a campout?”

SCOUTING: You’ve got reporters and editors all over the globe. What’s been keeping them busy lately? J.D.: Jamborees! Besides covering the U.S. jamboree this past summer, we had live broadcasts from jam- borees in Belarus, Estonia, and more.


SCOUTING: If Scouting Radio had a motto, what would it be? J.D.: If Baden-Powell had had the Internet, what would he have done?
