LGBTQ radio program comes to MSU

A nonprofit producing radio programs and podcasts for LGBTQ youth is coming to East Lansing. We talk with founder Marc Sophos about OutCasting, along with a student working on the project at MSU.

A New York-based radio program and podcast working with LGBTQ youth is starting its first operation away from the Big Apple. It’s called OutCasting, and there’s a meeting later this week to launch the project at Michigan State.

Current State’s Scott Pohl talks with the Marc Sophos, a radio veteran and MSU grad. He started OutCasting as a place for the stories of LGBTQ youth to be told and to be heard. Joining the conversation is Kayl Black, an MSU student who’s helping bring OutCasting to East Lansing.

Scott Pohl is a general assignment news reporter and produces news features and interviews. He is also an alternate local host on NPR's "Morning Edition."
