This episode highlights Margot Amouyal’s podcast, Yolanda Wilcox González’s student, from the Beaver Country Day School in Massachusetts. Margot is a junior and has been creating a podcast series for her independent study project. We highlight one podcast from her series which was submitted to the NPR student podcast challenge this Spring, earning an honorable mention.
