A special feature on the website that’s nearly done! Special thanks to Ziyuan Liu ‘16 for helping the liberal arts majors of TDL with coding.
Tune in to our first episode to hear Jesse Victoroff’s story on finding, and not finding home.
I just finished an interview for the radio program I co-direct with my friend… It was with a formerly undocumented student who transferred to Dartmouth… And oh my god, her story is so amazing and crazy. I just feel really grateful to have heard her story and overwhelmed and moved and ahhhh!
SO MANY EMAILS. SO MANY RESPONSIBILITIES. SO MANY STRESS.
But actually my life is awesome because I get to do public policy consulting for a Vermont non-profit for a class I’m taking, I’m learning material that will help me do research in the former Eastern Bloc post-grad, and I’m directing a radio program with one of my best friends. SO YEAH. I’M WINNING AT LIFE (kind of).
FUQ YEAH ALL THIS STRESS WILL BE OVER SOON IVAN.
Saving this here so I can paste it on the right person’s Facebook wall when their birthday rolls around.
For those of y’all who aren’t caught up on This American Life business, the TAL staff just released their first spin-off. Check it out at serialpodcast.org!

Just how we at TDL are feeling about producing this first episode.
Have you been listening to Serial? What do you think of it?
I absolutely love it. I think Sarah Koenig is doing such a great job.
It combines a lot of the investigative journalism that TAL has been attempting (and succeeding!) to do for the last few years, right? (Think Harper High, the crazy judge story, etc.) But it also has that storytelling element, the mythical/other worldly element of the non-everyday, and all other great components that go into great radio journalism.
The one flaw I do see in it, though – and it’s really not so much a flaw, but let’s say I tune out for just one episode; maybe I’m listening to it with only 70% of my normal listening attention. This means I’d be lost for the rest of the season. Unlike regular episodes of TDL/Radiolab/even The Moth, it’s pretty unforgiving if you miss an episode/little section. That said, the same can be said about TV shows, so I really can’t fault them.
I love it. What do you think!?!

Finding a home at Dartmouth →
With the end of my freshman year in sight, it is impossible to say exactly how much I have grown, learned, and really, changed over the course of the past year. I can’t and won’t even begin to reflect wholly on my first year just yet, because I don’t think I have the current emotional capacity…
It’s already been almost a whole year and a half since I first wrote this. I barely remember doing so.
