About Us

Barak Wright — host & director

Barak Wright began his work in radio with an internship on the Hugh Hewitt Show where he screened calls and did background research, and even got a little airtime with Hugh himself. This taste of stardom only fed his hunger for bigger and better things, and in the Summer of 2009 he interned with Ken Myers of the Mars Hill Audio Journal.

He started The Sandbox in Spring of 2009, with the intention of bringing art, literature, music, and the discussions surrounding them to a wide student audience. Barak hails from Fallbrook, CA, the avocado capital of the world.
