Best of the Best: Third Coast International Audio Festival

(Rochester, NY) – Best of the Best is an annual ode to audio storytelling, taking you on a journey through the full breadth of what’s possible in stories made from sound. This year's program showcases the winners of the 20th annual Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition. From nearly 500 entries and 23 countries, eleven stories were chosen as winners. On Best of the Best, we share each of these meticulously crafted and boundary-pushing stories, alongside behind-the-scenes interviews with the producers who made them. Best of the Best: Third Coast International Audio Festival airs Friday, November 27 at 12 p.m. and again at 9 p.m. on AM 1370.
