An evening of storytelling with radio and podcast creator Joe Richman, founder of Radio Diaries, NPR’s longest-running documentary series. For more than two decades, Radio Diaries has trained ordinary people to document their lives in sound.

With this approach, Richman and his team have pioneered a new form of citizen journalism and produced some of the most acclaimed and innovative documentaries ever heard on public radio. Richman will bring us on a listening tour of stories from inside prisons, retirement homes, and by teenagers from South Africa to Saudi Arabia to Alabama.
