5 Reasons To #Follow @YouthRadio On Instagram This Instant

We’ll explain it all

Yes, we’re journalism nerds and we love our news #nofilter — but Instagram’s features make for some awesome storytelling. It’s our go-to spot to post original illustrations, animations, GIFS and videos. If you love the stories we do for NPR and Teen Vogue, you’ll also love our @youthradio Insta feed.

You’ll laugh!

News doesn’t have to make you cry. It can also make you laugh at the ridiculousness of it all. We’re pretty sure that’s called fact-checking these days.
