Destination DIY is a public radio show and podcast based in the creative hub of Portland, Oregon. This hour-long, documentary-style show includes stories from around the country about innovative, creative people. Our last season of shows included themes such as “DIY Economy,” “DIY Rituals,” and “Representing Yourself.” For more information or to listen to some of our past shows, please visit http://destinationdiy.org
To kick off our next season of shows, we’re putting together an episode called “DIY Disasters”. Here’s where you come in. We want to hear your best DIY disaster story. Did you have a project that went wrong in more ways than you thought possible? Did you start something and realize you were in way over your head? When did you realize you had a DIY disaster on your hands? Have you ever sustained an injury while attempting a DIY project? These can be funny stories or scary ones or even sad ones. For the purposes of our show, a DIY project is pretty much anything that someone does without the help of a large institution. We’ll choose the best stories to be featured on Destination DIY later this year. Featured stories will be produced by a radio professional, who will interview you and help to tell your story on the air. You’ll also get some sweet Destination DIY swag like buttons and stickers along with bragging rights.
