Re:sound #272 Radio Residents

This week, three stories by alumni of the Third Coast Radio Residency.


The making of a Chinese American beauty queen

by Hannah Kingsley-Ma; edited by Jen Chien & mixed by Gabe Grabin for KALW.

Every Lunar New Year, Chinese American women from across the country travel to San Francisco to participate in the Miss Chinatown USA pageant — an ethnic beauty pageant that’s been a national event since the late fifties.


Little Wrist Computer

by James T. Green for Welcome to Macintosh.

The Apple Watch sometimes gets a bad rap. Some people complain about it being useless, a dumb, frivolous toy. But one person thinks differently.


Gargling

by Erisa Apantaku (Re:sound debut).

After moving back in with dad, producer Erisa Apantaku notices a strange sound coming from the house.


This episode of Re:sound was produced by Isabel Vázquez.
