Fifteen years ago, “Radio Diaries” began giving tape recorders to teenagers, pioneering a model for working with people to document their lives.
Since then, the series has taken public radio listeners around the world – introducing us to sideshow freaks and marginalized teens - to everyday workers and human rights activists.
Coming up Where We Live, award-winning audio producer and reporter Joe Richman will join us to talk about radio storytelling and upcoming diaries of a young girl’s first year in the military, a teenager in Cuba, and a woman working at one of the largest investment banks in the world.
