The Spot: Finding Home

Emily Corwin
Baby Enzo (2), Brecht, Madeleine (7), Becky, Vince (5) and their dog, Ted.

This week on KALW's showcase for the best stories from public radio podcasts and independent radio producers...

"3 Kids, 2 Parents, 1 RV," originally aired on Word of Mouth, produced by New Hampshire Public Radio, September 2014.


Reporter Emily Corwin gets to the heart of a growing movement where families are making the road their home. 

Check out the daily Word of Mouth podcast, featuring surprising stories about tech, science, culture trends that you won’t really hear about in news headlines. Find out more about the show at wordofmouthradio.org

"Mighty Tieton,” originally aired on the podcast Rendered, June 2015.

The podcast Rendered, investigates and celebrates the relationships between creativity, business, and DIY culture. They’ve reported on conductorless orchestras, backyard butchery, grassroots theater companies, and even the iconic, colorful carpet at PDX. If you consider yourself a maker, a doer, or a curious mind, Rendered is a great show for you. 


In their latest episode, they uncover the story of folks who are trying to create the town of their dreams, one that can foster their career goals, and also one that could benefit from some economic rejuvenation with a new stream of revenue and business owners... but the original residents have their own thoughts about that process. Find more stories, and how to subscribe to the Rendered podcast at their website.

This week's episode featured music from: Black Moth Super Rainbow, Ed Lang, John Fahey, Black Prairie, and Nick Drake.
