Each month at ENDPAIN, we select a question related to our monthly theme that guides our content. This April, we chose to explore the theme of Sleep, and asked our readers to participate by calling in and answering the question:
What is your relationship to sleep?
This resulting answers are edited together to form our VOX-POP series. VOX-POP—which comes from the Latin phrase, vox populi, meaning “voice of the people”—is a kind of audio collage that gets us thinking about our upcoming theme in all its complexities and contradictions, and from new perspectives we might not have come up with on our own. Listen to this month’s VOX-POP to get a glimpse into all the ways we’ll be inquiring into the concept of Sleep throughout the month of April.
And as always, you can participate in next month’s VOX-POP related to May's theme of Forgiveness by calling (310) 494-0243 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org with an .mp3 or .wav file with your answer to May's question: what does it mean to forgive?
