Latitudes | WAMU 88.5 - American University Radio

Latitudes

Latitudes is an hour-long  radio show that takes you into the lives of everyday people around the world. The stories are unexpected, rich in sound and riveting to hear -- they engage the intellect, the conscience and the imagination. They feature people who are finding constructive solutions to some of life’s toughest challenges.

Latitudes features on-the-ground reporting by a vast international network of correspondents. We also train local reporters around the globe, who take us inside their communities.

Latitudes is a collaborative production of the Global News Partnership and WAMU. Editorial partners include the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and the Christian Science Monitor.
