KUOW’s RadioActive Youth Media is proud to offer our 20th annual summer introductory workshop for teens. In our first intensive hybrid workshop, eighteen teens, aged 15-18, spent four and a half weeks learning about radio journalism and audio storytelling.
Youth participants did all of the research, interviews, writing, voicing and editing to produce their own radio stories and podcasts. By the end of the four and a half weeks, the group produced six podcasts and eighteen radio feature stories.
