Out of the Blocks


Out of the Blocks is an immersive listening experience built from a mosaic of voices and soundscapes on the streets of Baltimore. In each episode, producers Aaron Henkin and Wendel Patrick make it their mission to meet and interview everyone on a city block. A custom-tailored score embroiders this tapestry of stories hidden in plain sight.

Out of the Blocks started as a one-time local storytelling experiment by WYPR’s Aaron Henkin. It grew into an occasional radio hour on WYPR. With the help of PRX’s Project Catapult, Out of the Blocks has evolved into a bi-weekly podcast.
