Review of Agincourt

A great piece discussing the influence of individuals on human history. There really is no way of definitevly describing what happened yesterday or a moment ago and thus our history is subject to constant variation. This is made plainly evident through the conversation in this piece, which is well written and generally well produced. I definitely prefer a piece that makes me think.

Review of Dressy Girls

Finally, an honest revelation about the way teenagers handle themselves today. GRanted my ripe old age of 23 makes me much older and wiser -HA!- but where are the parents, the role models and the values for these kids? Thank you Lena for raising the issues you have with a piece far overdue.

Review of Love & Radio: With a Bullet (clean and short)

This was an intriguing piece to listen to. I thought it was very well-scored, and dealt with the subject of guns in a way we don't normally see or hear. I especially like how it raises personal questions for the listener and that it leaves general questions within each story unanswered. I also like it's honest nature, in that it isn't just telling a story, but it is relaying some of the inner emotions of the characters. At first I was skeptical about the subject matter: guns. But it was well worth the half hour.

Review of Story 9: Fish Grow on Trees

This isa nice, fresh piece. The park volunteer's comments really helped to connect the idea of bring an urban forest back to life. I also appreciated the honesty of the people involved in the project. The piece is well written, well edited and flows very nicely. I enjoyed the mini learning experience it provided me.

Review of Rock On, Reality!

I really liked the laughs I got from this piece. Unfortunately, I had to listen about 5 times to pick up on all the commentary becasue it was a little too speedy. Despite the jokster tone and the cynicism, I couldn't help but find myself thinking "God, isn't that the truth!" To a certain degree, I think that's what cynicism is supposed to do to people. Good work.
