Life of the Law “explores the relationship of law to the experience and meaning of American society and culture,” and the last few episodes have been especially riveting: a rare look inside death row, redesigning for a more humane court, and life inside the “felony factory” in Chicago.
Short shows rule!

This episode of Love + Radio is not for kids and is not going on the radio. It is challenging and deals with extremely uncomfortable material, but it is also riveting and masterfully constructed and sound designed, so I really want to share it. Prepare to think about it for a long time after, and again, not for sensitive listeners. You know who you are.

Paolo Pietropaolo is one of my favorite producers in the world. He was one of the geniuses behind (the life-changing) The Wire: The Impact of Electricity on Music and he has this incredibly charming series from the CBC called The Signature Series, that asks the question, “If a musical key was a person, who would s/he be?” Have a listen, to the Swashbucking, Master of the Universe, E-flat Major:

This year’s Third Coast International Audio Festival Conference was book-ended by two talks from the greatest producers of radio working today: Ira Glass and Jad Abumrad.
Ira kicked off the festival with a late night talk about the new distribution methods and business models that are allowing audio makers to connect with audiences in exciting ways.
Jad gave the “Favorite Things” benediction, with examples from Radiolab and beyond to illustrate the “little s#@t” that makes audio storytelling so compelling.

We just started adding pieces from BackStory with the American History Guys to the mix. With great stories and lively discussion, the History Guys connect our history to the present day. They’ll also help you win your next argument about the causes of the War of 1812. Be prepared. This happens.

Helena De Groot lives in Brussels and makes great radio like The Internet in Sepia, a composition which Helena submitted to this year’s Third Coast Festival Short Docs competition. In the piece, Helena meditates on distance in two dimensions: space, and time. Her narrative clips are supported by music composed by friends’ of hers, which you can find here.
The Third Coast Festival curates audio storytelling, and hosts an annual audio conference and competition. Every year they give a “short docs” challenge, inviting producers of all kinds to explore sound within a few paremeters. Here was this year’s prompt:
Produce a short audio story (2 -3 minutes) that features at least two of your neighbors, includes a color in the title, and contains three consecutive seconds of narrative silence. Stories of all styles are welcome – from documentary to drama – and everything in between.
Remix has a number of Third Coast’s Short Doc sumbissions in our mix. Have a listen:

I heard this story last year on UnFictional and thoroughly enjoyed it. The power of radio and the power of metal.
Nowadays she’s a working mom who just bought her first home, but back in college, Angie was better known for her alter ego – Ivy, the Mistress of Metal. Most of the students at her small liberal arts college couldn’t have cared less about Angie’s weekly heavy metal radio show. But at the nearby prison, she was a legend.
