July 24, 2017

Professor Adam Tinkle and rising junior Adam Simon ’19, who have worked together on audio projects through Skidmore’s Moore Documentary Studies Collaborative, are now collaborating on Upstate Youth Radio, summer workshops where children learn about writing, producing, and broadcasting for radio or recording for podcasts. Participants get to use the CREATE Community Studios in Saratoga Springs and a new CREATE studio in Schenectady, as well as Skidmore’s WSPN-FM student-run station, in the basement of Jonsson Tower.
