RADIOMAKERS (call for stories, ASAP) / by Bear Guerra


“The Homelessness Marathon National Radio Broadcast. July 24, 2019 from 10am to 12 midnight eastern. For 20 years, the only broadcast of it’s kind; featuring the voices of the homeless, recently homeless, or those on the edge of homelessness. Produced and hosted by Mr. Nobody (Jeremy Alderson) this year’s broadcast may feature several of the well-known candidates for president. (Klobuchar’s and Warren’s people say they are considering; the Green party candidate will participate).

So here’s the BIG ask: We’re looking for feature length story contributions. Around 5 minutes give or take some seconds. Could be something evergreen you produced in the past. Should feature voices of homeless people but we’ll entertain something slightly more academic.

And here’s the BIG part in the big ask: we come to you with our hands out. Everyone who works on the Marathon – including Jweremy and myself and my comrades at this year’s host station, WMBR, Cambridge, MA – is a volunteer. So we’re asking you to donate your story. I know, I’m the one who’s constantly harping on a living wage for freelancers. But we hope you will consider this a worthwhile cause/broadcast.
