The world’s great dramas, all in one city block

“You do not have to cross an ocean to find a great story.
There are great stories in your backyard.”

Amen, Penny.

Some of the great stories of our day —
the struggles for democracy, freedom, and human rights
the environment and the compromises we make to protect it…
the impact of media globalization on our values…
the future of non-profit media
the commercialization of almost everything

These stories (and more) are unfolding now in our own backyard.
