    Keepin' Minds Sharp All Around | APN's Waveform (KARC): Season 2, Chapter 6

    Another long episode coming your way! In the spirit of mental well-being, considering that APN has been busy editing Arcadia Unified's first-ever middle school wellness conference, and preparing for the possible return of sports to Arcadia High, Lawrence decided to sit down with Andrew Liu and Jacob Randall, two APN reporters who helped put together this monumental event, to talk about what it was like being on that project, and how they are maintaining their sanity during these times.  

    Also, this wellness attitude convinced Lawrence to take a low-maintenance approach to editing this podcast episode due to the busy schedule he has had over the past two weeks, so that's why the audio is...well..."unique."   

    Let's just say that this is a "director's cut".

    Who Runs This Podcast? Girls. | APN's Waveform (KARC): Season 2, Chapter 4

    Since the days of old, it has been an uphill struggle for women in this society--especially in this year's APN crew, where 16 out of the 19 members are boys. Nevertheless, KARC co-producer Safia Malik and APN members Clara Montenegro and Giselle Lai have always met the challenge, and exceeded its power. Today, they sit down to discuss not just their experience in the boys club that is APN, but their outlook on advancements for women throughout society.  

    This chapter is dedicated to the 47th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, which is today. APN is an ardent support of gender equality and women's rights, and will continue to highlight these issues on its platforms.  

    Segments: 

    0:00 - Introduction 

    0:50 - Too Many Boys in APN, Not Enough Girls 

    5:20 - Women's Health, Women's Stories 

    14:11 - Sports Definitely Ain't Just a Man's World 

    19:28 - She Runs the Gov't, She Runs the World

    Waveform is Back and Intact! | APN's Waveform (KARC): Season 2, Chapter 1

    After Paula Contreras and Jeremy Sutton wrapped up Season 1 in spectacular fashion in the spring of 2019, Lawrence Sung and Safia Malik pick up their torches to bring back the "best" student podcast of Arcadia High School: APN's Waveform! 

    For KARC's Season 2 premiere, we bring on APN advisor and THREE-TIME EMMY AWARD WINNER Frank Sunez to dig deep into APN's quarantine grind!

    Segments:

    0:00 - Introduction

    1:15 - The News Turned Upside Down 

    7:25 - The Ship Hits Rock Bottom

    13:20 - The View from Outside

    17:11 - We Get A Badly-Needed Recharge

    23:33 - How APN Revived Itself From the Dead

    Note: The company JLab is in no way affiliated with JBL (also we are not sponsored by any of these companies). Lawrence probably screwed that one up because he was thinking too much about his college apps... Also, for now we are using the old graphics from last year--you can see our new podcast graphics in Chapter 2!
