utCasting and OutCasting Overtime, public radio's groundbreaking LGBTQ youth programs, are produced by MFPG — Media for the Public Good, Inc., a national nonprofit public media production organization with a local public radio heritage: for many years, we owned and operated a public radio station just north of New York City — WDFH FM 90.3 Westchester Public Radio.

MFPG produces OutCasting , a 29 minute program, and shorter OutCasting Overtime pieces.  We also produce OutCasting Extras, short online-only features.  Each comes out monthly.

MFPG is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public media organization giving voice to perspectives and issues underrepresented in mainstream media.  Donate here!
