Campers often listen to audio dramas at home and at camp or measure the distance in a car ride by how many episodes they can listen to on the way. Radio drama has become a part of the memories of camp and the characters in those dramas have become role models to kids all around the world. The vision for Widji Radio is to add to that legacy by bringing real stories to life in a fun and energizing way. The issues our characters struggle with are real, and many of the characters in the episodes are played by volunteers, campers and staff – often playing themselves. Just imagine being able to go to camp with people you’ve gotten to know through audio drama.
An element that excites the production team is that campers themselves can participate in the recording of episodes. Everything done to produce the episodes is accomplished by people related to camp in some way. Our writers for the first season include staff and camper alumni and the mixing and mastering is done by camp staff. This means you too can be a part of the story!
