Makers Manual #38: Radio Blah Blah

Maël Hénaff

Makers Manual is a collaborative project between exciting makers and STORE STORE. These downloadable manuals are a practical guide to making at home for beginners and experts.

Radio Blah Blah is a DIY FM transmitter to broadcast your climate anxieties (or anything else!). “Green economy. Blah blah blah” stated Greta Thunberg during the Youth4Climate summit in Milan, September 2021. “This is all we hear from our so-called leaders. Words that sound great but so far have not led to action. Our hopes and ambitions drown in their empty promises.” Radio Blah Blah is a DIY FM transmitter made in response to the COP26. Using it will allow you to hack into local radios and broadcast your climate anxieties, fears, and hopes for the future of our communities. This manual aims to engage, and repurpose technologies for social good!

Maël Henaff is a French designer and filmmaker examining the intersection of technology and social sustainability. Maël investigates the impact emerging innovations have on our society by elaborating case studies and speculative scenarios. His work explores situations where technologies are hacked and democratised to create a real debate on how we should use them for the benefit of our communities.
