Reality Radio, Second Edition

Karen Michel

University of North Carolina Press

Some documentary makers talk of “giving voice.” Giving voice to the disadvantaged, the voiceless, one’s fellow man or woman. But what of the child? And what if giving voice means putting the tools of production in the hands of a teenager—all of the tools, including the director’s chair? Karen Michel is a talented and accomplished radio maker in her own right, but for Reality Radio we asked her to write about her years of work guiding teen radio makers. Teens really are different from you and me, Karen explains. And they can teach us aging radio makers a thing or two. But that’s not the reason to listen to them. Their priority, in any case, is not to educate grownups. They just want and deserve to be heard. Oh, to be heard. And to listen.
