Episode 38: Introducing The Newest RadioActivians

RadioActive hosts Sarah Rosenthal and Ann Kane bring you stories created by the newest generation of RadioActivians. They reported these stories as part of RadioActive's 2013 spring workshop:

  • Le'Jayah Washington shares the story of a Seattle rapper, M-Eaze, who's working 20-hour days to get his home town on the map.
  • Varun Dhananjaya finds out that Macklemore's hit song "Thrift Shop" has inspired teens on the East Side to go thrift shopping. That rubs some thrift shop aficionados the wrong way.
  • Riley Guttman reports that proposed tolls on the I-90 bridge would cost students who commute to Mercer Island for school.
  • Yafiet Bezabih's mom has a stable job and a red Honda. But when she was his age, she was a refugee fleeing war in her homeland of Ethiopia.
  • Nolwenn Delisle talks to a high school student who lost all of her hair — and says it's the best thing that ever happened to her.

Plus, the slang of the month returns in style — on wheels, cruising to the beat!
