Great New Podcast!
I love that you’re giving voice to high school students through podcast. HTV has a longstanding tradition of producing stories that might not otherwise be shared given the unique perspective and access of teenagers. I am excited to hear more as you use this new medium to explore content “by teens, for teens”!
This feels more like a lesson or PSA than a Podcast
High quality reporting from HTV
Very good to see HTV available in this very portable format. Look to see more great reporting from the students at Hillcrest High School telling their stories.
