When I started What’s up Eastie? my friend and neighbor Mary Ellen Welch was a regular. Long before the show was ever conceived, I interviewed her. Kate Telma, Sophie Kazis, and I produced the interview as part of a ‘Media for Movement’ course by MIT Colabs and Zumix.
It’s a quick little episode to spotlight material of immediate interest to listeners.
Listen to a spokesperson from Councilor Ayanna Pressley‘s campaign for US Congress, Alex Goldstein, as he talks about what sets this candidate apart from her incumbent competitor, Congressman Mike Capuano.

Hey Listeners! It’s me, Morgan (pictures here 🙂 )! I had an incredible time working with Kannan and What’s Up Eastie? this summer as a Zumix Intern. In this episode, Kannan interviews me about my time in East Boston, my thoughts as an outsider, and allows me to talk about all the ways East Boston is forever imprinted to on my heart. Can’t wait to come visit East Boston again soon.
In the mean time, KEEP LISTENING TO WHAT’S UP EASTIE!
