Radio Camp for Grown-Ups

Saturdays at 8:35 am

Being a grown-up is rough. Keeping up with bills, a job, family responsibilities, and everything that comes with adulting can sometimes be overwhelming. So why not escape? Why not forget about being a grown-up for a few hours per week? That’s what Radio Camp for Grown-Ups is all about.

Every week participants learn something new about the world of audio storytelling and narrative journalism. They have the opportunity to hear from industry experts about their work and how they produced some of their favorite stories. Not to mention, they get to meet a cool group of like-minded people and collaborate in a project that might air on 88.5 WFDD. Below, you’ll find some of those stories.
