Pearlman’s Janice Ian interview on NPR podcast

A recent interview with Janice Ian by Tish Pearlman, host and producer of “Out of Bounds” on WEOS-FM, has been picked to be featured on an NPR podcast.

It will be posted beginning Wednesday, July 5, and up for a week, at

National Public Radio and PRX (Public Radio Exchange, a non-profit distribution and licensing service, where some of her interviews have been posted since April) are working together and featuring “the best of PRX” on these weekly podcasts.

Pearlman wrote that she will also be featured as producer of the week within the next few months.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Ian's first hit, “Society's Child,” written when she was 12 years old. It was followed a decade later by “At Seventeen.” This year also marks the release of her 20th major album, “Folk is the New Black.”

“Out of Bounds,” created by Pearlman, features intimate 30-minute “interviews with visionaries: people living, working and thinking outside the mainstream.” The show is a project of the Women's Interfaith Institute in the Finger Lakes Inc., based in Seneca Falls, N.Y., and dedicated to promoting education, cooperation, peaceful dialogue, women's leadership and understanding among the world's faiths.

“Out of Bounds” may be heard starting at 7 p.m. each Thursday on WEOS-FM (Geneva-Ithaca), the radio station of Hobart and William Smith Colleges. For details, visit
