LISTEN: ‘Thirsty’ Might Not Mean What You Think It Does

Sep 8, 2014

Teens in North Carolina are using the term "thirsty" these days, and they don't mean that they need a drink. The term refers to a specific behavior - one that occurs in social media, or in person. Teen reporter Morgan Manson explains:

Morgan Manson is a rising senior at Hillside Tech Academy in Durham, NC. She produced this story as a part of WUNC's Summer Youth Radio Institute.

Morgan Manson and the other youth reporters were based at the American Tobacco campus all summer.
