PST, THIRD COAST IS BACK THIS FALL — in a new, virtual world. Join us for much-needed audio community & inspiration in: Third Place.

6 Stories. 6 Producers To Know.

To kick off 2019, Third Coast invited producers whose narrative audio work we’ve never featured before, to send us the best story they’ve made recently. We called it the Producer Index Challenge.

Now, we've chosen 6 winning stories & their producers, and we're featuring them all on this playlist.

We’re thrilled to share this playlist of stories from producers whose narrative work we've never before featured. We're thrilled to introduce you to winning works of Jazmin Aguilera, Sandhya Dirks, Erin Anderson, Arwen Nicks, Melanie Kruvelis & Wederik de Backer.
