First Day as Assistant Youth Advocate!
Today went suprisingly smoother than anticipated! Some talented youngsters from the Young Ladies Radio Project came down to the station to interview people from the community about Food and Food in Emergencies. Two of the ladies went for a stroll to aquire more audio for a vox pop.
I can't wait to hear the finished interviews that these ladies create! They interviewed this guy from the City of Portland who helps coordinate stuff in emergency situations- he was really animated and full of fascinating information. Before we started recording he made a comment that the Government doesn't help people- thats not what it does and thats not what it was ever meant to do. I'm a little disappointed that we don't have that recorded :)
The other group of girls interviewed one of their teachers about how the body processes food and why food is important for people. I realized that I had never really learned about what metabolism was before- it was cool to get a little refresher course on biology!
The finished "radio show" will air on the Youth Underground on Wednesday, May 27th between 6-7pm! It should be an incredible addition to the show!
