This episode of Audio Revolution! highlights the core issues relevant to the students from the MASTERS program’s service learning course.  While students’ interests varied, two topics emerged as the themes for this show: Medicinal Marijuana and Environmental Justice/Sustainability. Hosts Briana Thomas of Santa Fe Community College and Arlo Barnes of the MASTERS charter school bring listeners in and out of a variety of topics: from a personal narrative and panel discussion about Medicinal Marijuana usage to poetry about the polluting of caves and much much more!

Tune in to a show full of facts and perspectives on the world all around us!

Ashly Ramirez participated in Youth Media Project’s 2009 Summer Intensive to create this piece, her first, which portrays a young woman’s struggle through childhood and adolescence.  Themes of abuse, domestic violence, neglect, mental illness and institutionalization are depicted in poetic and lyrical detail.  This piece has been used in advocacy groups to dialogue about suicide and domestic violence.
