Finding America: The Accidental Baker

About This Episode


Storymakers work with 15 storymakers — people who live in one of the South’s most diverse and fast-growing cities — to explore divisions of race, class, and opportunity through a new public media platform. In The Accidental Baker, Courtney Smith hated baking at first but is now learning how to perfect it at Loaf bakery in Durham. In partnership with WUNC.

Finding America is an independent public media production comprised of 15 teams embedded for nine months at forward-moving public radio and television stations across the U.S. The series moves into communities large and small to invent new storytelling models with citizens who help us tell a new story of the rich diversity of America today.
