PODCAST: QuaranTeen’d — NPR Podcast Challenge Honorable Mention


Competing with roughly 10,000 students and 2,300 other submissions across 46 states and Washington, D.C., “QuaranTeen’d: Adolescence at a Distance” received an honorable mention from a judging panel of over ten experts, according to NPR.

Three TPH editors created, wrote, and produced “QuaranTeen’d” from home: co-editor-in-chief Anthony Wong, former arts editor Maura Cowan, and multimedia editor Graham Reicher.

Featuring original music, interviews, and perspectives across Piedmont and beyond, this podcast offers a student-centered perspective on the impacts that the COVID-19 pandemic had on students academically and socially in the past semester.

Created originally in early May for the NPR contest, this is now the first podcast to be released through TPH. Please click here or the image above to listen.
