Listening Post #59
19 August 2016, Posted in: Listening Posts

Welcome to The Listening Post, where each week we get an insight into the radio listening habits of a guest contributor. Once each person has made their picks, we ask them to nominate someone for the following week's Listening Post...

Our previous Listening Post was provided by American producer Ann Heppermann. Ann is the founder of The Sarah Awards, an initiative to celebrate and reward radio drama for the 21st century. She is also host of the podcast "Serendipity". Check out her selections here

Ann has nominated Veralyn Williams to provide our listening highlights. Veralyn is an award-winning Journalist who has been tackling questions on identity, social norms, and community since she picked up her first microphone in 2004. Currently, she is managing BrooklynDeep.org, an online platform documenting neighborhood change in Central Brooklyn, producing podcasts for Slate.com, and is working with WNYC's Radio Rookies, to produce their own stories. Through all of her endeavors, she aims to give a voice to perspectives that are often forgotten in the media.
