Podcast Description

“If you’re gonna enslave folks and make sure that they can’t learn to read and write…and keep them in this undignified situation, then it’s easier to look at them and think that they are inferior. So that just perpetuates that story.”

John Biewen is audio program director at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University (CDS), and host and producer of the Peabody Award-nominated podcast Scene on Radio. His audio documentary work has taken him to forty American states and to Europe, Japan, and India, and has appeared on every NPR newsmagazine, This American Life, and the BBC World Service, among other outlets. He teaches audio to undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education students at CDS. He is co-editor of the book, Reality Radio: Telling True Stories in Sound.
