1. George Packer: The Great Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America


    from ALOUDla Added 58 1 0

    In conversation with journalist and author Héctor Tobar. This National Book Award-winning account illuminates the erosion of the social compact --the collapse of farms, factories, public schools--that had kept the United States stable and middle class since the late 1970s. In The Unwinding, Packer probes the seething undercurrents of American life, offering an intimate look into the lives that have been transformed by the dissolution of our economic glue. From unchecked banks to the rise of Walton's Walmart, this retelling of American history through Packer's voice offers “…a sad but delicious jazz-tempo requiem for the post-World War II American social contract.” (David M. Kennedy)

                I created this project for my Composing Digital Media class at the University of Pittsburgh. The assignment was to take a text and remix it into something new. I used pieces of the radio broadcast script of "War of the Worlds" (1938) and turned them into a video regarding the fictional "Russian American War."

                    • A Colorado fire chief fights more wildfires


                      from The Story Group Added 2,620 5 0

                      Elk Creek Fire Chief Bill McLaughlin's career has followed the spread of wildfires throughout the western United States. In 2012, his teams fought the Lower North Fork Fire in Colorado, an unusual early-season fire that kicked off the most destructive fire season in Colorado's recorded history -- until 2013 eclipsed that record. According to the 2014 National Climate Assessment, higher average temperatures are drying out forest fuels, increasing the length of the fire season, reducing snow cover, and increasing the vulnerability of western forests to more wildfire. "Climate change is very real," Chief McLaughlin says, "It's changed my entire life."
