The Outer Voices Podcast is a web forum produced by high school and college students aimed at bringing under-reported international stories to youth in America. We are shocked that only 10% of all news in the U.S. is international. In response, we've joined up with award-winning journalists to create this project. It will be a weekly podcast downloadable from iTunes but also available on the blog where students can stream the podcast, learn more about the stories and interact with the journalists directly.
Our incredible team of youth volunteers have already created the website/blog as a forum for the Outer Voices Podcast. Several of the stories have already been created and mixed as podcasts. Kickstarter funds will be used as a six month start up for the Outer Voices Podcast to help pay the journalists, our audio editor, the web master and the host a nominal fee. The complete project will be an online forum featuring under-reported stories where youth can converse with the journalists and engage with their peers in learning about these issues.
Our team is made up of a student editorial board based in Sonoma County, California and a production team responsible for overseeing all technical aspects of the project.
