Teenage Diaries Revisited

Airs Sunday, March 16 at 6 p.m. A lot of life happens in two decades. Back in the 1990s, Radio Diaries producer Joe Richman gave tape recorders to a handful of teens and asked them to report on their own lives. Now, almost 20 years later, Joe has checked back in... With Josh, still struggling with Tourette syndrome as an adult; Melissa, who was a teen mom and is now the mom of a teenager; and Juan, a Mexican immigrant who is now a father and husband...and still undocumented. Teenage Diaries Revisited is presented by Radio Diaries, in collaboration with NPR and PRX
