Their work comes from the heart and gives us a glimpse into the most enigmatic of worlds: teenagehood. Listen in as young producers from around the country present their work and talk about how they’re making radio relevant for a new generation.
Breaking the Mold is moderated by the Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson and Nikki Silva), and features producers from WDIY Youth Media, Radio Rookies, and the Andy Zanca Youth Empowerment Program.
The Kitchen Sisters (Davia Nelson & Nikki Silva) are producers of the duPont-Columbia Award-winning and James Beard Award-nominated NPR series Hidden Kitchens, and the two Peabody Award-winning NPR series, Lost & Found Sound and The Sonic Memorial Project. Hidden Kitchens, heard on Morning Edition, explores the world of secret, unexpected, below-the-radar cooking across America - how communities come together through food. The series inspired their first book, Hidden Kitchens: Stories, Recipes, and More from NPR’s The Kitchen Sisters, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year for 2005, and nominated for a James Beard Award for Best Writing on Food.
