Turning Us Loose Episode 1

This podcast represents the ultimate challenge for us. The students had less than one hour to write, edit, record, and publish this podcast to MPRadio. The final product might lack in production value, but it sure didn’t lack in student effort!

Music used in this episode: Hip Hop Mixture (Ojo), and Hip Hop Backing (David Enemy)
