Sending Messages: The Podcast
True stories, poetry, interview and radio plays written, performed and produced by youth in a secure care facility in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The mischeif we get into as kids has a way of spinning out of control. The same behaviors that once seemed innocent now echo very real consequences. Freeway DK, N. and P sit down and discuss everything from playing with legos to the first time their parents caught them with a gun. Featuring music by Liu Kang and Sosa, Goofy and BabyKing. Thanks for listening.
