Back Roads Radio- What is American?

You’ll hear the creative and inspiring voices of young thinkers and writers. This show features the collaborative work of Youth Media Project within northern New Mexico schools and colleges, where we teach the craft of digital storytelling and the art of listening for a socially responsible world. Students tackle the complex question, “What is American?” through audio cascades, commentaries, a fable, and a spoken word performance.

Sports Conortary

Conor Cole of the MASTERS program at the Santa Fe Community College delivers a hilarious and thoughtful commentary on a favorite national pastime: watching sports. Conor questions watching sports in part as a video gamer-  how is watching sports productive? how can you really feel the ‘win’ when you didn’t actually do anything? This special conortary was part of our show on Sports and Competition. Enjoy!

Summer Intensive ’11 Showcase

Audio Revolution! Dream Summer IntensiveFor the first Audio Revolution! Show of the Fall 2011 Season, the students of Youth Media Project’s (YMP) after-school Production Team created this broadcast that showcases the work done by YMP’s Summer Intensive. Teaming up with the Santa Fe Arts Institute and using the space of the Santa Fe University of Art and Design’s music studio and classrooms, YMP facilitated eight youth from Santa Fe and Albuquerque in learning the ins and outs of storytelling and audio production in two weeks. The culmination of these two weeks are aural narratives that were focused on the theme of dreams and showcased in this show! Hosts Ari Rappaport (also a Summer Intensive member) from the MASTERS program and Maheyo Tapp of ATC (the Academy for Technology and the Classics) guide listeners through these amazing stories. Enjoy!
