Planet Takeout is an interactive, multiplatform documentary on the role of Chinese takeouts as a vital cultural crossroads in Boston and beyond. The project was incubated at WGBH Radio as part of the nationwide Localore initiative aimed at spurring innovation in public media.

The project embedded in four takeouts in diverse neighborhoods in Boston to tell stories from both sides of the takeout counter, as well as soliciting stories and photos from listeners across the country about their local takeouts.

Val Wang reported features airing on WGBH Radio 89.7 and worked with developers Zeega and designers Golden Arrows to design a groundbreaking interactive website.
