Radio Rookies held a month-long Short Wave Workshop in partnership with the Mott Haven Village Prep School in the South Bronx. The students selected topics related to the 2008 presidential election, and then, after learning how to use the recording equipment and the fundamentals of interviewing, they headed out into the school hallways and the streets of their neighborhood to speak to their classmates and people in their neighborhood about the presidential race. Their stories debut here on the Radio Rookies website.
