The WUNC Youth Podcast is the result of a summer long exploration of the question "What is News?" Sounds like a simple question, Right? But in 2017 it’s one that comes with an incredibly nuanced answer, especially if you ask a group of predominantly African American 16 to 22 year olds. The show is hosted by WUNC’s Kamaya Truitt Martin and features interviews, youth reporter stories and round-table conversations with our team of Youth Reporters.
