Radio Diaries, Inc. (Brooklyn, NY 11201-8319)
Joe Kirk Richman (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Hunker Down Diaries

Production of a series of radio programs documenting the historic COVID-19 pandemic through first-person storytelling.

Radio Diaries requests support for Hunker Down Diaries, a series documenting the historic COVID-19 pandemic through first-person storytelling. At Radio Diaries, we give people recorders and work with them to document their own lives and histories. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our work is more essential than ever. We are uniquely capable of producing intimate, first-hand accounts, even when in-person interviews are impossible. Our new series, Hunker Down Diaries, will tell the surprising stories of people thrown together by the pandemic. The series will help to humanize the facts, create a more nuanced understanding of the impact of the crisis, and document these stories for future generations. Hunker Down Diaries is broadcast on NPR’s All Things Considered and distributed on the Radio Diaries Podcast, a member of PRX’s Radiotopia.
