Lori Cavender dreams of opening a homeless shelter on Whidbey Island. Alexandra Brooks helps girls in Rwanda. Blair Burroughs works to remove land mines in Vietnam. This month our newest RadioActivians — Alexandra Brooks, Katie Rolnick, Vanessa Chidester, Mawusi Kudu, and Clare Martin — have brought together stories of people doing what they love and what they are passionate about. Hosts Kamna Shastri and Max Hutton guide us through the podcast and introduce the word of the month, which happens to be a synonym of passion.
Clare Martin and Halle Bills host our first podcast of the school year. In the show, Kamna Shastri shares the challenge of choosing a major, with the expectations that come from being the child of immigrants. Then, Zoe Sheinkopf sends us an audio postcard from Cape Coast, Ghana. And don't miss the new Slang of the Month!
Hosts Halle Bills and Nina Tran look back on their time at KUOW during the last show of the summer. You'll hear a story from Caitlin Gaylord about Wally Pet Store owner Paul Brown, who had a special bond with an orangutan. Also, Demitrus Price interviews Detective Cookie about how she became a police officer.
Sarah and Ellie take us on an adventure through the life of the director of Seattle's All City Band. Then we'll journey into the struggles of a student who can't attend the college of his choice because he doesn't have a social security number. Through laughter, tears and toilet humor, they end their last show with a slam.
Today's show is about love. Producer and host Daniel Metz brings us a story about the love an artist has for his paintings. Then Sarah Rosenthal tells us about a mom who is living in a van to pay her daughter's tuition.
Nina Tran brings us a story about Cayden Harmon, a teenage boy who was born in the wrong body: a female one. Halle Bills explores "froshing," a high school tradition that's loved by some and despised by others. And of course we had to invite your favorite MC's, Farheezy and C–Gaylord, to lay down some tracks in the studio!
