Inside Out is a dynamic documentary unit producing long-format radio programs and multi-part series. Highly experienced reporters turn a topic inside out to give it context, perspective, and understanding. With sufficient time to tell important stories Inside Out produces thought-provoking and original programs. A unique emphasis on the sounds and voices of a story, combined with first class narration engages the listener and brings them to the heart of the story.
