IPR Story School: Something out of nothing

Many Ukrainian refugees are eager to maintain connections to home, while also supporting those still in the country.

In this story, they talk about a monthly pop-up market full of goods from the homeland, the art of making something out of nothing, and using food not only to support a Ukraine at war but also to help rebuild a country they love. Plus: Teas, candies, special sausages, and fish floating in a dark brine.

Listen to the story through the audio player above. It comes from IPR's Story School, a 10-week program led by independent producer Juliet Hinley. Eight storytelling enthusiasts from around Northern Michigan learned how to pitch stories, record interviews, work with audio editing equipment and produce an edited, narrated final story. The finished pieces aired in a special presentation on Interlochen Public Radio. Listen to the whole program here.
