It’s a tricky thing to make a passion a career, Tyler says. “Almost four months in, I’m glad to say radio is still my passion.” But at the same time, “working at a radio station has an interesting change on how you interact with audio outside of work.”
This week’s audioblog episode, hosted by Davis Hovey, focuses on the theme of recreation and leisure activities and includes another of Davis’ “deep dives.”
The KNOM volunteers discuss their working lives at the station, including a feature focus on office fashion trends.
It’s been a challenging but rewarding learning process, Lauren says, in acclimating to the new hardware and software of KNOM’s brand-new, digital studios.
As the months dwindle onwards, it’s become clear that summer doesn’t last forever. Whether it’s the mornings lost to darkness, or the tundra’s rusted exterior, fall’s presence is hard to ignore. But the strangest part of the coming season, Tyler observes, is that, for the first time, he’s not in school anymore.
Davis, Tyler, Karen, and Lauren talk transportation: what mode of transportation they prefer to use, how they all arrived in Nome, and why they came here.
Join Davis, Tyler, Lauren and Karen as they discuss their initial experiences traveling to the villages of Western Alaska.
In this week’s volunteer blog post, Lauren reflects on the joys of old, leaky houses — and, with her fellow volunteers, reflects on a recent retreat weekend near Cape Nome.
“Anyone who lives in Alaska knows it,” Tyler says. “Salmon has been, and always will be, a big deal.”
Karen, Lauren, Tyler, and Davis discuss some of the ways they’ve had to adjust personally, socially, and mentally in order to feel at home in Nome.
