News Director Linn Davis '08 led a group of dedicated student producers to create the 30-minute broadcast, modeled after public radio's This American Life.
Listen Hear includes an always-varying lineup of news, feature stories, and interviews. Recent programs include stories about the local tattoo parlor, the trauma of room draw, students who don't wear shoes, and live interviews with College and community members.
Broadcasts aren't limited to the airwaves; during the school year, Listen Hear was also broadcast live, Mondays and Thursday at 9 p.m., at KDIC's website. Podcasts of the show are available anytime at the same website.
The Listen Hear staff: Front row (L to R): Sarah Mirk '08, Anand Balasubrahmanyan '08, Aki Shibuya '11. Back row (L to R): Amanda Gotera '09, Molly McCullough '11, James Anthofer '11, Fiona Martin '08, Matt Zmudka '11, and Linn Davis '08.
