What We Do

Radio Stories that Spark Imagination

Re-Imagined Radio adapts and shares stories via the radio medium that engage your ears. Play out for your mind's eye. And spark your imagination. We share our stories as radio broadcasts, live and/or on-demand streaming, and podcasts. Lots of ways to listen.

Our radio storytelling draws from dramas, comedies, oral and aural histories, documentaries, fictions, soundscapes and sonic journeys, radio and sound art. Each story utilizes the fundamental components of radio storytelling: dialogue, sounds for context and/or effect, and music. We provide stories with cinematic qualities inside your mind. The pictures are better there. The screen is larger, and you are the star.

Our audience is local, and global. We strive to connect with each listener, providing radio stories that are engaging, enduring. Entertaining, informing. This website provides information about our radio stories and the research inquiries behind them.

Re-Imagined Radio was created and is maintained by John F. Barber, faculty with the Creative Media & Digital Culture Program at Washington State University Vancouver. Barber produces and hosts each episode. LEARN more: mission, background, manifesto, outcomes.
