AIR’s team of 150 Finding America producers spent the last year embedded in far corners of local communities typically depicted by the media through a narrow lens of violence, poverty, or injustice. The goal was to open a wider margin into day-to-day living, and develop new ways to make stories for and with the people. In these 2 minute audio dispatches, they invite you to meet some of the magical and ordinary people they encountered along the byways, and find more stories of America’s richly diverse citizenry on their multimedia documentary site.
