It’s the final day of #NPRStoryLab! The 10 teams will be presenting 10 awesome projects, and we want to introduce them to you. Follow along here…
1st up: "My Fellow Kansans" from @KCUR @ksnewsservice @KMUW. Kansas is a state "in the middle of nowhere" & "the center of everything." This podcast will bring together #pubmedia journalists from across KS to tell a deeper story of the '18 election - beyond who's up & who's down
"Forgotten Prison" will tell the story of the Alcatraz you've never heard of. McNeil Island Prison in Puget Sound only closed a few years ago. The podcast from @knkxfm explores the changing nature of crime & punishment in the US thru the stories of McNeil inmates, guards and more
"Justice functions differently in Indian Country" ... "Gone 3x" will tell stories of missing & murdered Native American women & girls in life, media and data. This project explores what it means to be indigenous & female in America. @jennimonet @nitanahkohe @ryanredcorn #MMIWG
What is it like for a refugee to be resettled in the US? @WCVE will tell that story in 3 parts: arrival, establishing yourself & citizenship. @SWINTERSMITH @angelaWCVE are working with former BBC broadcaster Zar Wahedi, who recently came to the US as a refugee from Afghanistan.
Close your eyes. Think of a moment this morning when you had a negative thought about yourself.

Thought of something?

The podcast "Self Hatred" will give us a place to talk out loud about that "demon within us." From Sharon Mashihi @molaborde @kaitlinprest
From @KPCC, "Tell Them, I Am ..." is a show for young listeners "who happen to be Muslim." It will debut during Ramadan 2019 and explore universal themes about identity, with stories exhibiting the vast diversity of Muslims in America. From @MishaEuceph @TooManyJames_s @arwenn
"Rap Sheet" is a series that will trace the interconnected rise of hip-hop and mass incarceration. From policy - to music - and back again. It's ... complicated. Coming from @Sid_Madden @rodneyodyssey @dtdesoto
Who owns the past? Ted Wood & @sadiebabits begin with a huge FBI raid in Utah and reveal the complicated questions about a shady trade in Native American artifacts.
What does it mean to live in "sanctuary"? In 1989, long before the current debate about sanctuary cities, San Francisco declared itself a sanctuary for immigrants escaping violence in their home countries. Oral history project from @AlexisGTerrazas, Diana Montaño & Josue Rojas
The mining town of Butte, MT, was once the largest city between Chicago & the West Coast. Now it's a massive Superfund site. "Richest Hill" from @nrvsaks @EricReporter @mtpublicradio ask hard questions about the city, its pollution & what the Trump admin promises to do about it.
