Northern Travel: The Meaning of a Place

In this week’s What’s Happening Podcast, visit a story from our Northern Travel issue — EW News Reporter Kelly Kenoyer’s history with Ketchikan, Alaska. This episode is straight-forward audio storytelling with Kenoyer narrating the experiences she’s had with her family in Ketchikan, but more broadly, this story is about what a certain place can mean to a person, and a family.

– “失われた未来を求めて (In Search of the Lost Future)” by Julie Maxwell’s Piano Music
