The past few years have been the most productive in Radio Diaries history. We became a founding member of Radiotopia, a collective of the best story-telling driven podcasts on the planet. We produced stories for This American Life, Audio Histories for NPR’s All Things Considered and made the Radio Diaries podcast biweekly. We hosted live events in New York, Chicago, Washington D.C. and received the 2014 Third Coast International Festival’s Gold Prize for Melissa’s Diary. This was all, in large part, thanks to support from people like you. We hope we can keep the momentum going, but we need your help. NPR only provides 10 percent of our production budget, so we greatly rely on donations from foundations and individual donors. Radio Diaries is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and your contribution is tax-deductible. Your donation, no matter what size, helps us do our work. Here are just a few projects we have planned for 2015:
♦ Majd’s Diary – The audio diary of a girl in Saudi Arabia
♦ Thornwell’s Diary: Thirty-Three In, One Out – the story of a man documenting his transition out of prison after serving 33 years for attempted murder
♦ Working: Then & Now, a five part series we’re producing in partnership with Project& and The Studs Terkel Archive/WFMU
♦ More live events, hopefully in a city near you
