Radio Workshop Podcast–October 10, 2009
Listen to the entire show
Welcome to the Radio Workshop podcast! We’ve got a great show for you this week, as we’ll be hearing from one of our radio reporters from the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital in Cape Town.
We’ve been working with a group of young people from Red Cross since January. We’ve taught them how to use recorders and microphones, and to tell their own stories for radio. Today we hear from 8 year-old Mujahid Weiner. Mujahid shares his story with us about how he landed up in hospital in the first place, and interviews his doctor about what it’s like to work in the Burn’s Unit.

Ask the doctor
For those of you who have been in hospital before, have you ever asked your doctor questions about how you were as a patient? Next up, Mujahid asks Dr. Heinz Rode about what it’s like to work with burn patients, and finds out whether he was a good patient, or a bad patient!
Are you a burn survivor or do you know someone who is? Visit the World Burn Foundation of South Africa’s website for more information about fire prevention and what to do if you have a burn. They provide all kinds of resources and information, and they even host a Burn Survivor Camp!
That’s it for this week, join us next week for more from the Radio Workshop. We hope you’ve enjoyed the show!
