A lot of life happens in two decades. 

Back in the 1990s, Radio Diaries producer Joe Richman gave tape recorders to a handful of teens and asked them to report on their own lives.

Now, almost 20 years later, Joe has checked back in... With Josh, still struggling with Tourette syndrome as an adult; Melissa, who was a teen mom and is now the mom of a teenager; and Juan, a Mexican immigrant who is now a father and husband...and still undocumented. 

Teenage Diaries Revisited is presented by Radio Diaries, in collaboration with NPR and PRX

just listened to teenage diaries revisited - story of mother of boy with ataxia. I just want to say how moved and spellbound I was by this piece. This was magnificent piece of story-telling - the mother's character is just extraordinary - what strength and insight! I say this as someone with more than 25 years in broadcasting (including the BBC). Congratulations - a truly memorable piece which I couldn't but listen to even though I was in a hurry to go out this morning. Wonderful.
