Globe West is more than an informative, entertaining collection of stories and information that arrives on doorsteps with the Globe every Thursday and Sunday. It's also a fascinating, online multimedia experience.
Each week, the multi-disciplined reporters and photographers at Globe West bring you photo galleries, audio slide shows, audio clips, podcasts, and -- yes -- this news blog.
A few recent examples of our work include:
Web producer Ralph Ranalli's multimedia package about suburbanites who have converted their cars to run on used vegetable oil, which featured a photo gallery of local "grease car" owners, an audio slide show tracing the journey of one owner's fuel from the Frialator to his Mercedes, and an online quiz;
A touching photo gallery compiled by staff writer Stephanie Siek and photographer Bill Polo about members of the Kelley family of Newton, who face each day with grace and love despite a myriad of challenges, and;
Bill Polo's piognant photos of a young blind boy, Matteo Faso, who participated in a kayaking program for people with disabilities at Hopkinton State Park.
Globe West is also home to two podcasts:
* Coffee with Beverly, suburban columnist Beverly Beckham's podcast, which returns from summer hiatus this Sunday, and;
* Great Writers, the Boston Globe Books podcast, which features nationally-known writers reading excerpts from their work at Newtonville Books, one of the region's best respected and most beloved bookstores. (Great Writers is also on hiatus, and will returning in mid-September.)
