NPR story: "Local Mini-Documentaries Are Attracting a Global Audience"

Click HERE to listen to, read, or download today's NPR story on The Amerikans, by David C. Barnett - a journalist and producer at WCPN: ideastream  / Northeast Ohio Public Radio.

"Locally produced goods are all the rage, these days, from the craft beers at area bars, to the fresh produce grown in the soil of Northeast Ohio. Some Oberlin filmmakers are growing their own version of localism by turning their cameras on ordinary people. ideastream’s David C. Barnett reports that these mini documentaries are developing a global following."

David C. Barnett came to 90.3 WCPN in 1990 with an armful of taped interviews and an idea about producing a story about the 1970 Kent State shootings - the compelling program “Emily’s Diary” was the result. David has subsequently produced many award-winning programs and is a semi-regular contributor to National Public Radio news magazines. His documentary productions about American musical pioneers Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams and Sam Cooke have been nationally syndicated by Public Radio International.
