Over the past 11 weeks Philly.com has been hosting Mouthful, a podcast that features dramatic monologues highlighting the experiences and perspectives of young Philadelphians. These monologues, which are performed by professional actors, are produced by Philly Young Playwrights and Yvonne Latty, director of the Reporting the Nation program at NYU's Carter Journalism Institute.
Ultimately the effort to connect is essential, she says. “Enjoying those moments of connection when they exist and celebrating them is a great thing.”
Striving for and celebrating moments of connection is at the heart of Mouthful. This episode marks the final release in our first season of ten episodes, all of which are available online now. Listen to the full episode here.
