2015-2016 Volunteers

For my final audio blog post, Maddie and Mitch put me in the hot seat in Studio C.

I shed some tears, we shared some laughs, and I did my best to say thank you to everyone I met here in western Alaska over the last year.

You were all so kind, requesting songs on my Monday needle drop show, agreeing to be interviewed, picking me up from various village airports, welcoming me into your home and feeding me muktuk (or mungtuk on the Island), oogruk, greens, Eskimo ice cream, and countless strips of dried salmon.

For all of it, I will be forever grateful.
