3rd Prize Winner - KCRW Radio Race 2017
I, with Co-Producer Laine Farber, won 3rd Prize in the 2017 Radio Race from KCRW's Independent Producer Project & KCRW's podcast UnFictional.
As winners, our piece was played in part on Press Play with Madeline Brand online and through their terrestrial station in Los Angeles, CA. After which, our piece Come On In was played in-full on UnFictional with the other winners of the race.
For this project, we had 24 hours to create a non-fiction radio piece based on the theme "down for whatever." From there, Laine and I contacted everyone in our friend-trees, but we found our story in an unsuspecting place: a boy I had gone on a date with... only once. Our second date was myself and Laine interviewing him about one of the darkest parts of his twenties.
It was an exciting experience, and incredibly rewarding. With that... thanks John ;)
