The Sandstone Podcast
Clara Haizlett (Arabic 2017), a 2018 ADF recipient, utilized her Alumni Development Fund grant to begin a podcasting project to challenge common stereotypes of the Arab world. The Sandstone Podcast was geared toward an audience in her home state of West Virginia and aimed to provide an accessible educational source of information about the Middle East for her fellow West Virginians and explores connections between those living in Appalachia and the Arab world.
Thus far, Clara has shared her own personal journey to cultural discovery on the podcast and interviewed a range of participants, including the local Imam, her parents, friends rom around the Arab world, and Arabs living in West Virginia.
