Since 1996, the Teenage Diaries series began giving young people tape recorders to report on their own lives. Over the past 17 years, the series has produced some of the most memorable stories ever heard on NPR. Join us for this very special evening with Executive Producer and Radio Diaries Founder, Joe Richman, to share the stories behind the stories that are chronicled in the Teenage Diaries series. Teenage diarist, Melissa, will also be with us sharing her story...then and now.
Joe Richman is an award-winning producer and reporter whose pioneering series Teenage Diaries brought the voices of teenagers to a national audience on NPR’s All Things Considered. Before founding Radio Diaries, he worked on the NPR programs All Things Considered, Weekend Edition Saturday, Car Talk, and Heat. Joe also teaches radio documentary at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. The LA Times called Joe “a kind of Studs Terkel of the airwaves.”
