While the Alaska Teen Media Institute studio is closed amid the Covid-19 pandemic, staff and youth producers are working from home to continue to bring youth stories to the public.
“Podcast in Place: Youth Stories From Quarantine” is a new podcast series highlighting the experiences of Alaska youth during this strange time we’ve found ourselves in. Each episode features the reflections, musings, and stories from a different Alaska youth, all recorded and produced from home.
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.
