RadioActive: Getting Personal

June 15, 2015 in RadioActive by Lara Jones


In this edition of RadioActive, host Nick Burns talks with Giuilana Serena of The Bee, a lovingly competitive storytelling event in Salt Lake City. Serena shares clips from the April Bee—Dirt: Stories of Scandal and Soil—and previews the next three events:

  • The Wild, true stories of the vast unknown, adventure, the wild child within, exploring new landscapes, embarking on journeys, which will be held Thursday, June 18, at The Leo. Tickets are $7 — you might want to get them in advance as The Bee is quickly gaining fans and regularly selling out all seats.
  • Outside the Lines: Stories of Transgression and Transcendence, which will be held on the Big Mouth Stage at the Utah Arts Festival Friday, June 16, from 7-9 p.m.
  • Process: The Struggle to Make Art Work, 6 local artists share true stories of sweat, tears, boredom and brilliance in the daily grind of art, which will be held on the Big Mouth Stage at the Utah Arts Festival Saturday, June 27, from 7-9 p.m.


In the second half of the show, RadioActive producer and KRCL Community Content Manager Lara Jones catches up with Dallas Graham of the Red Fred Project. He’s helping children with critical illnesses create books to share their stories with the world. One of them is about to be adapted for the stage.
