Welcome to American Student Radio, a national radio station and a national classroom: A forum for making useful journalism that enables a civil society. We'd love to hear from you, hear your stories, and find ways for us to experiment in this ineffable medium called audio.
This is our last episode of the 2018-2019 school year. We know, the school year actually ended just over a week ago. Maybe we’re huge procrastinators, or maybe we’re just prolonging the inevitable goodbye. That’s our theme this week: Goodbye. It’s fitting that this week’s episode features pieces from three of us seniors -- or, I guess, *recent graduates* -- as we say goodbye to our time as students at IU. You’ll hear from Emily Miles, Pealer Bryniarski, and host Sheila Raghavendran, plus contributing senior Naomi Farahan.
Directions take us where we need to go. Yet direction is such a versatile word. Whether it’s a physical place we’re going or an emotional journey, our directions in life can shape who we are as well as our next step in life. Max Sandefer is your guide for this episode, featuring pieces from Pealer Bryniarski, Emily Miles and Thanmayee Maddipati.
Host Sophia Muston walks us through the ASR moral alignment chart, including memes, skunks demons and so much more.
Producing this episode: Kat Spence, James Keys, Emily Miles, Sophia Muston, Jack Bassett, Sheila Raghavendran, Max Sandefer, and Pealer Bryniarski
We at ASR want to welcome you to spring! Here in the Midwest, it’s muggy and loud and perfect for some radio shorts about heat. We have pieces about the season, cooking, warm memories and the microwave oven. Also! A production staff game of hot seat.
We grow attached, and we separate. Our minds, our bodies, resentment, possessions, loved ones and love itself. Here's a little trip through all of that with guides Pealer Bryniarski and Noura Ahmed.
