All About Two Dollar Radio Radio

This Episode

Watch a video of Eric Obenauf, publisher of Two Dollar Radio, in a Q&A with his children, Rio and Maceo, about the vision for Two Dollar Radio Radio, and a preview of what's in store!

Each episode highlights a vital independent anchor who passionately contributes to their community's culture, who we hope you will consider supporting now more than ever.

Two Dollar Radio Headquarters, a locally owned and operated family-run shop — and the brick-and-mortar of indie publisher Two Dollar Radio! — is an indie bookstore, performance space, bar, coffeehouse, and fully vegan cafe located on the South Side of Columbus, Ohio. As a bookshop, they carry an exciting, carefully curated list of titles almost exclusively devoted to independently published literature. Their full bar serves cocktails, wine, and draft beer, and the cafe serves locally roasted coffee, house-made vegan meats and cheezes, sandwiches, salads, pizzas, dips, and desserts. Their performance space features a wide range of offerings from panel discussions, local and touring author readings, musicians, magicians, trivia, themed storytelling, poetry open mics, and more.
