People’s Stories: strangers, friends, family

images-7It’s pretty amazing how much stories can influence us, even the stories of strangers, and even more so, the stories about our families and friends. Tonight on Blunt, hosts Violet Sulka/Hewes and Aidan Mitchell weave together personal experience and recent research to look at how stories influence us. For example, do you know your DYK (Do You Know) score? Take the test that our hosts and their family members took: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/marshall-p-duke/the-stories-that-bind-us-_b_2918975.htm.

Sex Education

Tonight on Blunt Youth Radio, hosts Setareh Jalali and Aidan Mitchell tackle something of a sensitive topic- sex education. They’re joined by three special guests: Quinn Gormley, an activist in Maine’s queer and transgender communities, Kerry Donahue, the director of the radio program at the Columbia School of Journalism, and Lauren Grousd, a Portland-based counselor and trainer for Mentors in Violence Prevention, a gender violence protection program.
