This season, we’re listening to our elders. 

Season three, ELDERS, is here. We’re hearing from elder survivors of systemic injustice and historical trauma. They’re showing newer generations what they’ve learned about how to address and prevent those kinds of harm. 
Our first episode for this season is titled Uncle John, and it was co-produced by Julie Reynolds, Mara J. Reynolds, and Nancy Marie Spears in partnership with The Imprint, as part of the multimedia project Healing the Children of Horse Nations. Uncle John was produced as a project for the USC Annenberg Center for Health Journalism’s 2024 California Health Equity Fellowship.

Award-winning documentaries for your ears.
