Third Coast Festival announces winners
The Third Coast International Audio Festival, which takes place in Chicago from Oct. 9-11, announced the winners of its annual awards competition. I haven't listened to all the pieces yet, but I did hear a good chunk of "Giant Pool of Money" the other day: It does a really good job of explaining the complicated — and sometimes boring — mortgage crisis and why the people involved did stupid things. (Hint: They made a lot of money doing it and everyone else did it too.) So for some good listening, go to the Third Coast website and listen in with a pair of headphones.
