Re:sound #68 The Big Show Show (rebroadcast)

This hour, we're bringing you a favorite from our archive... the Rockettes, the opera, congress, and other spectacles!To find out what these producers have been up to since we first aired the show, visit ThirdCoastFestival.orgBackstage With the Rockettesby Dean Olsher and Emily Botein (The Next Big Thing, 2004)Manhattan has plenty of icons: the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Broadway marquee. But come December, there's really only one show in town: the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular, featuring fireworks, a flying santa, an indoor snowfall, and of course the world-famous Rockettes.The Tristan Mysteries: The Five-Hour Mysteryby Amy O'Leary and Limor Tomer (WNYC, 2007)Opera, by its very nature, is synonymous with extravaganza: the huge voices, the sweeping music, the epic story-lines, the performance that lasts hours. Wagner's Tristan und Isolde, a five-hour opera, is no exception and it has one of the most colorful histories around.Tristan und Isolde Act 1by Ed Herrmann (2007)For someone who doesn't like opera, there is nothing worse than sitting through Wagner. For those who just can't take it, here's act one of Wagner's Tristan und Isolde in three minutes, plus a summary of the action.What Brought Down the Houseby Brendan Greeley (2004)In our country, one of the biggest shows around is a constitutionally mandated annual spectacle starring one of the biggest actors around, the President of the United States. Each year he (or she) is required to give a State of the Union address to Congress. In 2004, producer Brendan Greeley decided to do a brief analysis of the address to see what kind of sentiment got what kind of response.Saturday Night Kleinby Sean Cole (Weekend America, 2007)One of the hottest tickets to one of the longest running shows in New York is absolutely free. All you have to do is wait in line. Louis Klein usually arrives at the line for standby seats to Saturday Night Live by Friday afternoon. The tickets are given away at 7 AM the next morning. And he's pretty used to the all-night sitting. He's been waiting on the line since the show was popular enough to merit a line.This episode of Re:sound was produced by originally produced Roman Mars and updated by Isabel Vázquez.Image by ChrissyJ, music in this hour by Genki The Producer.

Re:sound #237 The Tip of the Iceberg Show

This hour stories that dive below the surface to help us understand issues of race, the environment and immigration.How Race Was Made (Seeing White, Part 2) [excerpt] by John Biewen ( Scene on Radio , 2017) When producer John Biewen was in high school in the late 1970s, he learned from his textbooks that people could be divided into three distinct races — mongoloid, caucasoid and negroid. Decades later he wondered when and how this now debunked theory of race took hold. In this episode, John looks at those distinctions arose. This excerpt is the second episode of a multi-part series John is producing on race called 'Seeing White'. You can listen to all of the episodes on the Scene on Radio website (http://podcast.cdsporch.org/) or subscribe to the podcast.How the Environment Got Political [excerpt] by Brooke Gladstone ( On the Media from WNYC Studios, 2017) In the 1960's the issues pertaining to the environment were not nearly as divisive as they are today (e.g. Global Warming). Back then, the environment was a bipartisan issue, and a Republican president created the EPA in 1970 in response to public pressure. So how did we get here? How did the environment go from universal concern to political battleground — with the EPA caught in the crossfire?Listen to On the Media's entire episode about the EPA and the environment at http://www.wnyc.org/story/on-the-media-2017-03-10/State (Sanctuary Part 2) by Delaney Hall with Roman Mars (99% Invisible, 2017) In n the 1980s, the United States experienced a refugee crisis. Thousands of Central Americans were fleeing civil wars in their home countries.In response, a network of churches across the country declared themselves “sanctuaries,” offering shelter to thise who were threatened with deportation and in some cases helped smuggle people across the border. Leaders and members of these sanctuary churches believed they had a religious imperative to help people fleeing persecution. But the US government saw things differently, and took legal action. You can hear 'Church', the first episode from 99pi 's Sanctuary series, at 99percentinvisible.org.This episode of Re:sound was produced by Dennis Funk.

Re:sound #241 The Smash the Binary Show

This hour, stories that grab hold of our expectations and smash the binary.My Name Is Shawn and I Prefer Heby Judy Campbell & Amy Standed for The Leap from KQED (2015)Shawn Demmons is a 50-year-old man now, but when he was growing up, he was Shawna Demmons. Lately we’ve heard a lot of stories about people who, after years in the closet, found the courage to come out as transgender. But for Shawn, courage was never the problem. His leap was a four decade journey to realize he was a man. And then he had to decide just what kind of man he wanted to be.NOTE: Due to rights restrictions, this story is no longer available on Re:sound, but you can listen here: https://goo.gl/Te7iqkTwirl by Kaitlin Prest for The Heart (2017)Todd once loved a woman. And she loved him back, but there was one thing that she just couldn’t get over, he twirls. This piece explores what it means to be effeminate when you’re a straight cis-dude. Kaitlin talks to men who embrace and resist their femininity.The Accidental Gay Parents by Hillary Frank for The Longest Shortest Time (2015)In this story, gender is just a small piece of a complicated situation our protagonists find themselves in. Theirs is a tale that turns assumptions upside down: it’s a passionate love story, a tense legal drama, and a complicated family affair, that starts when boy meets boy.This episode of Re:sound was produced by Dennis Funk See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
