'Hear in the Gorge' launches podcasts

 


The Columbia Gorge Arts and Cultural Alliance has announced an original series of podcasts, with a launch party tonight in The Dalles.

Hear in the Gorge is a new series of radio-documentary styled podcasts that delve deeply into stories unique to the Gorge, in ways not commonly familiar to audiences.

The Hear in the Gorge Launch Party is tonight, May 17, from 6 p.m. to 8 pm, at the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center in The Dalles. Attendees will be able to hear outtakes from interviews that capture the history and spirit of the Gorge. You can also download the first podcast and subscribe to the series while you enjoy complimentary light appetizers, a no-host bar, meet your neighbors and learn more about the Gorge’s storied history and culture.

You can find out more at http://gorgeowned.org/hear-in-the-gorge, and you can hear promotional clips at https://soundcloud.com/gorge_owned.

The first four podcasts in the series explore the experiences of the region’s Japanese American residents during World War II, the Crag Rats (the oldest mountain rescue team in the country), Woodie Guthrie’s Columbia River Songs, and tribal life at in-lieu sites along the river. These podcasts highlight archival audio, as well as storytelling from locals and experts, creating fresh nonfiction narratives about the Columbia River Gorge and its heritage.
