This year's KYUK Internship program looks different than it has in years past. Instead of meeting in person at KYUK, interns and KYUK staff have met online to collaborate on content. In mid-October, Toksook Bay reported a surge of COVID-19 cases which forced the community into lockdown and the school to transfer to entirely remote learning. Interns Kaylee King and Tatyana Avugiak interviewed fellow interns Payton Chenar and Ethan Lincoln on what life in lockdown was like shortly before their own schools went into lockdown. This interview was recorded on Oct.22.

Content Warning: Domestic violence, abuse.

As Domestic Violence Awareness Month draws to a close, TWC's Annie Mae Lee sat down with Eleanor Fox, a domestic violence survivor, to talk about the importance of sharing stories and getting help.
