The Center for Documentary Studies is pleased to present the second episode of our new podcast, Scene on RadioProduced and hosted by CDS audio director John Biewen, the biweekly podcast asks, How’s it going out there? And leaves the studio to find out, capturing the sounds of life happening and telling stories that explore human experience and American society. Scene on Radio will offer listeners a biweekly dose of new stories produced by Biewen, the best pieces made by our students, and occasional gems plucked from the CDS radio archives. Read more here.

The second episode of Scene on Radio features another story from Contested, a Biewen-produced audio series that he describes as “listening in on life in America through sports.” Episode 2—”Friends and Basketball”—asks the question, “can the camaraderie of a team sport make race and class status ‘disappear’ for the kids involved or their parents?” Scene on Radio host and producer John Biewen hangs with a girls’ high school basketball team in suburban St. Louis, Missouri to test the idea.
