Radio Diaries is on a shortlist of shows that inspired me to become an audio producer with my own podcast a couple years ago. While so many podcasts are deeply effective, there are a few shows from Radio Diaries that I think about on a daily basis. Whenever I am frustrated making an epiosde or question whether what I'm doing could effect change, I have a note on my bulletin board that says "Listen to Radio Diaries."
By it's nature, Radio Diaries is raw, unadulterated storytelling. In a world where NPR and big producers have reigned supreme, Radio Diaries is affirmation that we are all capable of being storytellers - everyone has a voice and everyone can be part of this weird radio world. The production is so simply good and the vision of the show shines through in every single episode, without fail. Intensely beautiful show that everyone should be listening to, especially in times when you need a reminder that your story matters. Thanks for all the inspiration. Much love - the Hungry podcast
