For the first RadioActive podcast of the summer, new hosts Isaac Noren and Carlos Nieto bring you stories about gender and gender stereotypes.
RadioActive producers asked people what it means to be a man or a woman. Shout out to Amina Ibrahim, Carlos Nieto, Ian Dangla, Isaac Noren, Kendra Hanna, Maddie Ewbank, Srikar Penumaka and Rachel Lam for getting those interviews.
Then, Molly Freed talks with young adult novel readers and writers about how the young adult fiction market is growing, but boys are being left behind.
RadioActive is KUOW's youth radio program, and all the stories here are produced by young people age 16-21. Listen to RadioActive stories, subscribe to the RadioActive podcast and stay in touch on Facebook.
