Indie Kingdom and True Stories: Adventures in Nonfiction Audio Storytelling

unnamedWGDR’s Indie Kingdom and True Stories Youth Radio Journalism Programs

In this semester-long course that WGDR sponsored several years ago, high school students learned technical radio and audio production skills, including recording, research and writing for radio, interviewing, logging, editing, sound designing, and working with broadcast deadlines, according to the course syllabus.

In addition to technical skill building, students were immersed in the art of telling stories through sound, practicing deep listening, various forms of audio storytelling, and how to give and receive meaningful feedback with peers.

Each student completed high quality radio stories, which were broadcast on WGDR.
