Season 3: ELDERS has launched!

This season, 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.

GRAY AREA is co-published with the nonprofit news site Voices of Monterey Bay.

We make documentaries for your ears.

We are the auntie-and-niece team of Julie Reynolds and Mara J. Reynolds. telling the stories of people who are trying to get beyond labels of right and wrong or good and evil to get to something even bigger: redemption. Gray Area deals with some pretty heavy stuff, but it also lightens up and offers hope when you least expect it. As Mara says, it’ll make you cry — but in a good way. So please check out Seasons One and Two.
