The changing of seasons brings all kinds of excitement. Students explore the season of summer through a variety of lenses including stories about nostalgia, and activism as well as meditations on the season utilizing the forms of spoken word, vox pop and audio postcards. Hosts Gabe Rima and Sara Davis invite you to join them in the backyard and on the beach for this episode of Audio Revolution.

Why Can’t We

Katherine MacDonald, from the New Mexico School For The Arts, wrote and recorded her song, “Why Can’t We,” during Youth Media Project’s summer intensive at the Santa Fe Arts Institute.  In this catchy and melodic song, Katherine plays piano and sings and her lyrics bring up multiple questions about peace, harmony and social justice… so, why can’t we have these things?
