About the Project
Between March 9-17, 2011 the On Being production team travelled to Israel and Palestine along with students from the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Journalism. Our goal was to listen for realities and possibilities for this region that get hidden by headlines. Our interviews with both Israeli and Palestinian citizens and our attempts to flesh out the complexity of meaning within these categories resulted in a larger project for our show. This project consists of a collection of radio shows, audio, pictures, and blog entries from both our production staff and the USC students.
