Announcing! Our new podcast series! Podcast in Place: Youth Stories from Quarantine
While the ATMI studio is temporarily closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, staff and youth producers remain hard at work from home. So we bring you a new podcast series featuring stories, interviews, and audio diaries from Alaska youth, stuck at home.
Our first episode features an entry from ATMI producer Ormund Alaois, recorded on his phone in his home in Anchorage. Listen in as he talks about keeping in touch with his grandmother in Florida, being put to work while at home, online schooling, and how this pandemic compares to a zombie apocalypse.
Hosted by Daisy Carter with music by Devin Shreckengost.
Many thanks to supporters of our podcast including United Way of Anchorage and the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Rasmuson Foundation through the Arts in Education Fund administered, under contract, by the Alaska State Council on the Arts.
