In this edition of Youth Media Project’s Audio Revolution!, we dissect the complex topic of Language.  From personal narratives about dying languages to the follies of learning a new one, Youth Media Project producers dig deep to create this compelling show on Language.  Christine Trudeau and Dwayne Joe present pieces about the struggle to sustain the native languages of both Dine’ and Potawatomi.  We will hear the humorous stumblings of Clay Baldo, as he describes the potential dangers of learning the Chinese language.  Kaja Swenson tells us what it takes to learn a new language like Japanese.  Shannon Latham presents The Language of Music, which explores how musicians use music like an author uses words. Chuco Aguilar shares his completely original song called Languagez, revealing his unique perspective on language.  Stephanie Jock delves into her community of IAIA (Institute of American Indian Arts) and the Acoma Pueblo to learn about the connection between language and identity.  Hosted by the hilarious duo of Charles-Austin Ross and Tati Norbeck, this edition of Audio Revolution is jam-packed with Language.

Coming Out

IMG_4358Youth Media Project presents an Audio Revolution! exploring the topic of “Coming Out”.  We will investigate just how people reconcile their internal self with their outside reality, strong people who, in the face of discrimination and opposition, decide that they have no choice but to be who they are.  Our media team will cover questions such as: Why is coming out such a difficult and courageous act?  What sorts of prejudices do even the most accepting people still harbor when it comes to LGBT individuals in their community?  How can we support and help those who are struggling with these issues?  And where does education stand on this issue today?  This Audio Revolution! show is hosted by YMP interns, Shannon Latham and Chuco Aguilar.  Check it out!
