Fresh Greens and Fresh Greens 2.0
Terrascope Youth Radio has teamed up with New Hampshire Public Radio, the Public Radio Exchange and youth radio groups across the country to create “Fresh Greens: Teens and the Environment” and “Fresh Greens 2.0,” hour-long, youth produced specials that have each been licensed and broadcast by about a dozen stations across the U.S., from New York to Seattle, from Austin to Cape Cod. Teen interns from Terrascope Youth Radio selected and edited pieces from other youth radio programs, wrote and voiced the host script, chose music, conducted live-to-tape interviews and mixed and produced the final programs. Use the links above to listen to them at PRX.org, the Public Radio Exchange.

In collaboration with Hudson River Sloop Clearwater and WAMC/Northeast Public Radio, TYR interns produced a weekly series of short pieces about the environment to be broadcast in the "Clearwater Moments" segment of Northeast Public Radio's afternoon news programming. The series lasted roughly two months, and was heard by tens of thousands of listeners in seven states. You can hear it here.
Cambridge and the Environment
A half-hour, TYR-produced special on “Cambridge and the Environment” aired as a special edition of the regular WMBR “Terravoice” program. It included pieces on: grass vs. artificial turf on local playing fields; locally-produced biodiesel; the city’s new, LEED-certified library building; wildlife in Cambridge; and other topics.
