In the fall of 2017, KALW and East Oakland Youth Development Center teamed up to present a series of audio storytelling workshops for East Oakland youth. Taught by KALW reporter Eli Wirtschafter and Snap Judgment producer Adizah Egan, the students learned the basics of audio storytelling and created their own pieces, which you can listen to below.
