What is this website?

The Media Distribution Center is where you can find and download Jim Hightower‘s commentaries and columns, for use on your radio station and/or print publication. If you’re looking for the prettier version of everything (including the public podcast, and much more), you’re probably looking for The Hightower Lowdown.

It says I have to log in to download. How do I do that?

You can use the login box in the upper right corner, or go here.

Hang on, I don't think I have an account. How do I get one?

Register for an account here. You’ll be submitted to our review, and we’ll notify you within 48 hours or so if you’ve been approved or not.

What's the difference between a commentary and a column?

Commentaries are shorter text (~300 words) and audio (~2 min) pieces.

Columns are slightly longer text pieces (~500 – 700 words).

I have more questions.

No problem. If it’s about the content itself (looking for a particular file, need a different version, etc), you can contact Laura Ehrlich, [email protected], 512-477-5588.

If there’s a technical problem with the website (logging in, logging out, downloading files, etc), contact Deanna Zandt, [email protected].
