WAMU 88.5 : Third Coast, Hour One

Third Coast, Hour One

The Third Coast International Audio Festival brings the best new documentaries produced worldwide to the national airwaves in a special two-hour program, Best Of The Best: The 2011 Third Coast Festival Broadcast.

The featured documentaries, all winners of the 11th annual TC / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation competition, demonstrate just how powerful radio can be. Innovative and insightful, the stories will engage, provoke, entertain, and transport listeners, proving that all you need to discover new worlds is a little box and an antenna. In addition to these memorable stories, Best Of The Best includes interviews with winning producers Nick Van der Kolk, Jad Abumrad and Ben Calhoun, who give us a glimpse into the art of audio storytelling.
