STORIES

The Best Little Swimmer

Terry Galloway is ten years old and absolutely in love with the idea of summer camp. The only problem is, her family can’t afford it. But after she fails a hearing test at school, Terry learns that she is deaf -- and also eligible to attend The Lions Camp for Crippled Children, a summer camp that is free to kids with disabilities. The summer of 1960, just got way more exciting.

Terry Galloway is a writer, director and performer for stage, radio, and film. For more about Terry’s childhood in Texas, check out her book Mean Little Deaf Queer.

Produced by Adizah Eghan, original score by Leon Morimoto

The Dog That Went Around The World

The story of the first dog to travel around the world (and refuse a free steak).

Produced by Joe Rosenberg, sound design by Leon Morimoto

Quake City Hero

In 1989, an enormous earthquake struck the Bay Area. One of Oakland’s major arteries, the Cypress Freeway, collapsed. And one man named Raven, a local Oaklander, left his home, and dove into the wreckage to save lives.

This story contains strong language, violence, and graphic imagery. Please take care while listening.

This story comes from Liam O'Donoghue, host and producer of the podcast East Bay Yesterday.

Produced by Liam O'Donoghue and Eliza Smith, original score by Davey Kim
