Excellent Program for Youth
Media Lab is ground-breaking cultural creative work! Bravo! Great to hear young people getting the opportunity to make news, tell their own stories in their own words. In an age when mass media is so often providing mis-information, it is wonderfully refreshing and vital that young people learn the mechanisms and skills by which information is created and shared, in a top-notch, professional, entertaining, fun, and informative manner so that they can determine how they are represented in our society. I'm a huge fan!
Appreciarte the honesty and vulnerabilty the students have! A much needed podcast!
Keep up the good work students!
