Damn, these stories are good.
Dmae first told me about the Third Coast Festival a few months ago. Basically, it’s the equivalent of the Sundance Film Festival in the world of audio documentaries. Last night, I pulled up the stories for this year’s big winners. Haven’t heard every single one, but ‘A Fragile Son’ from CBC Radio and ‘The Ground We Lived On’ from Sound Portrait moved me to tears. The latter is a story about a woman’s undying admiration and love for her dying father.
