From Our Soundbooth | July 03, 2012

After a summer hiatus, we’re excited to be back on the air with the TMR Podcast! This week, we begin a series of episodes honoring the winners and runners-up of our 2012 Audio Competition with Emma Weatherill’s “Nuns on Trial,” which was our winner in the Audio Documentary category.

Emma Weatherill is a broadcast journalist based in the UK, who produces programs for BBC Radio 4. She recently studied at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine, which enabled her to satisfy her curiosity about historical neurological diseases and ventriloquist dummies. Before becoming a radio journalist, Emma was a harpist, and she is waiting for a time when she can combine the two.
