Hand a kid a microphone and you never know what you'll hear. Generation PRX's Jones Franzel has put together a list of the best youth radio pieces of 2008. Some are heartbreaking, others are simply cute, but every story in this playlist shines a light on the challenges and triumphs of an emerging generation.
My personal favorites include:
- Day-in-the-life of Wisconsin's youngest super delegate, reported by 13 and 18 year old Y-Press journalists. Strong writing, interesting interviews, and the young reporter's comfort and poise behind the mic make this piece shine.
Check out the list and weigh in on your favorite youth radio pieces of '08.
