Radio Ambulante Senior Editor Camila Segura and Editor/Producer Silvia Vinas share their radio immersion stories in a new manifesto over at Transom.
Given Transom’s dedication to bringing new and various voices to public radio, no experience required, their story is right up our alley: “Until we came to the US, the idea of using radio as a tool to tell relevant, incisive, entertaining stories with news value — this notion was brand new. We heard it in English first, and thought: we want to do that. But we also share this: both of us joined Radio Ambulante with almost no practical knowledge of how to make radio.”
Amen. Camila and Silvia write about how they work on the show (They’ve never met in person!), why they’re doing it (“We want to tell stories that complicate your idea of Latin America”), and they bring samples of their work. You’ll be surprised by who is listening and where they’re listening. Click here to be inspired by their storytelling.
For the first time ever, we’re also offering a translation of this manifesto in Spanish. And, we’ll be collaborating with Radio Ambulante in the coming year to translate more of Transom’s resources:
