KUNM Youth Radio airs Sunday evenings on KUNM. This summer, a group of young radio producers traveled to Detroit for the US Social Forum. I helped three students prepare to document their experiences on a bus caravan and at the conference.
They interviewed each other before the trip and they shared reflections about media and social activism after returning to New Mexico.

We chatted at the KUNM studios about the craft of writing and her work teaching young people.
The Stones Speak
Nonprofit organizations across the country are facing a decline in donations and some tough choices about possible changes in their programs. In New Mexico, the Boy’s and Girl’s Ranches are consolidating their services to save money. That means a lot of changes for the at-risk teens who are living on one ranch south of Albuquerque.
Boys in New Mexico now have a new opportunity to learn about becoming a man. I spoke with David River for KUNM about some of the unique challenges facing young men today.
