||The Desert, My Mom, and Me, by Trenton Good of City High Radio||I might as well get out with it — this is my last podcast for Youthcast. Two and a half weeks ago I packed up my stuff and moved from Boston, MA to Concord, NH, in order to report on NH economics for NPR's StateImpact project. The piece we're featuring today — by City High [...]||5/31/12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Rerun: To Bet Or Not To Bet, by Vincent Geary of Brooklyn College Radio||Like many Americans, state governments are struggling with debt, and getting creative about solutions. One such solution is to legalize internet gambling.

||My Time in Greece, by Jacob Holley-Kline of Alaska Teen Media Institute||Last month, Jacob Holley-Kline went on a school trip to Greece.

||Hallelujah the Saviors are Here, by Rachel Smith of Louder Than a Bomb 2012||When Rachel Smith's older sister was a second-semester high school senior, she and her classmates started to "senior slide."

Always Thought Provoking
This podcast comes out just infrequently enough to leave me wanting more. I listen to the youths, speaking in their own voice, on subjects of their own choosing and, inevitably, I will save the podcast to listen to it once again later. That's how interesting I find it. The topics of which the youths speak (a mother who is a Jehovah's Witness, a father with 'rock lung', things you don't tell your parents) are thought provoking and just plain interesting. The voices and subjects are real and unique. An excellent podcast every time.
Wonderful preview of up-and-coming documentarians!
I love youthcast! I love getting to hear the voices, thoughts, and stories of teens that are featured on here. Their stories are so unique and varied-- it feels like an unfortunately rare opportunity to listen to the voices of our youth. The production and story selection are similarly top-notch.
