“Our Own American Life” from PSCS Radio


Students Jasper, Lorenz, Aiden and Jamie, working with staff member Scobie Puchtler, have created an 18 minute audio piece modeled on the NPR syndicated radio show “This American Life”. This episode of “Our Own American Life”, entitled Playing With Fire, explores the themes of danger, fun, and collateral damage through the recollection of two stories about boyhood adventures.
