Tucson Teens Explore Community Issues Through Podcast

Their efforts gained traction during the 2018 midterm elections.

Members of Generation Z, which refers to those born after 1997, are growing up and taking stock of the world around them. Two such teens include Grace Proebsting, 17, and Rose Long, 18, whose interest in economics led them to launch their own podcast called "Gosh Darn Podcast", which explores how related issues impact Arizonans. They were encouraged to create a podcast for their varsity economics club at University High School. Arizona 360 got a look behind the scenes at how the teens produce an episode. Issues covered by the podcast include the midterm election, immigration and homelessness.

Listen to episodes of the "Gosh Darn Podcast" here.
