State of Re:Union "Austin Texas"

Sun, 11/14/2010 - 10:00pm - 11:00pm

Host Al Letson explores the balance of culture and success in Austin, Texas.

On the next episode of State of the Re:Union, host Al Letson takes a closer look at Texas' capital. Austin is a town wrestling with its identity, not as a result of a natural disaster or economic meltdown, but rather its success. The population has spiked and so have its economic advantages, but many residents worry that the development and growth might jeopardize the city's unique, countercultural feel. State of the Re:Union "Austin, Texas" airs Sunday, November 14 at 10 p.m.  

With so much talk about "community," sometimes we lose perspective on the real stories of the people working to make homes, lives, and neighborhoods across the country. In State of the Re:Union, host Al Letson travels the country to find those stories -- and tell them with grace, perspective, and deep curiosity. State of the Re:Union explores the resonating themes, stories, challenges and cultural components that create communities across the country and celebrate the commonality that links us as a people. Letson brings his formidable stage and poetry slam skills to the mic in each episode. State of the Re:Union airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on AM 1370/AM-HD91.5-2 throughout November.
