The 2017 Third Coast Radio Residency

The 2017 Third Coast Radio Residents: Aaron Scott, Adizah Eghan, Cher Vincent, Jared Marcelle, Jasmin López, Jimmy Gutierrez, Ruxandra Guidi, Sharon Mashihi and Syeda Hasan.

These nine producers came together in April of 2017 for a Radio Residency at the Ragdale Foundation, just outside Chicago. During their week away from the demands and deadlines of everyday life, each Resident made progress on their own audio project, while sharing expertise and sonic camaraderie with one another. Mentor Nishat Kurwa (Youth Radio, Vox Media) was on-site all the while, offering one-one-one guidance and editing sessions.

The Third Coast Radio Residency is supported by the Third Coast Fund, an initiative to increase access to Third Coast programming, and the Ragdale Foundation.
