One Week

Morning Edition and All Things Considered on 89.1 WBOI

One Week is a new series produced by WBOI's Katy Anderson, and it's a pretty simple concept.  We give someone a recorder, and ask them to record their thoughts and observations for - you guessed it - one week.  

The series aims to build bridges and understanding between WBOI's listeners and people you don't typically hear on the radio - like teenagers,  immigrants, minorities, students, and the working poor.  They'll tell you their story with their voices.  

You can hear installments of this series throughout the upcoming months on Morning Edition (5AM - 10AM) and All Things Considered (4PM - 6PM) on 89.1 WBOI.

One Week is a new series produced by WBOI's Katy Anderson, and it's a pretty simple concept... we give someone a recorder, and ask them to record their thoughts and observations for - you guessed it - one week.    

To kick off the series, we'll hear from sisters Mary and Amina Matata. They're 15 and 17 years old, and their family immigrated to the US from Congo about ten years ago.  We gave Mary and Amina a recorder for one week to get insight on what it's like being African in Fort Wayne,  how media affect perception of Africa, and pop culture.
