The Keepers: Radio/Podcast/Social Media Project, Season Two

Production of the second season of The Keepers, including eight podcasts for National Public Radio and fifty-two short stories for the website and social media.

The Kitchen Sisters request NEH support for Season Two of their award-winning series THE KEEPERS, a radio, podcast and social media project exploring the rich, hidden world of archivists, librarians, collectors, historians, curators—keepers of the culture and the cultures they keep. Building on the work of scholars, with nationwide input and ideas from archivists, librarians and the public, the series creatively brings diverse narratives to life deepening public awareness and understanding of the humanities, through skillful storytelling, a range of diverse voices and perspectives, oral histories, archival audio, music and natural sound. The series digs deep into complicated histories, neglected stories of traditionally marginalized people, and the lives and work of The Keepers, guardians of history, large and small, protectors of the free flow of information and ideas. We are requesting $100,000 to produce 8 radio/podcast stories and 52 Keeper of the Day web and social media stories.
