Reversal of Fortune

by Dan Weissman, Roman Mars and Sam Greenspan (99% Invisible, 2013)

Chicago's biggest design achievement isn't the achitectural wonders that rise high above the city's lakefront and river — it's the Chicago River itself.

Descent

by Alex Chadwick and Bill Abbott (Unfictional, KCRW, 2011) The story of two men whose troubles and tragedies find respite in the raging rapids of Cataract Canyon.

The Ganges River

by Phoebe Judge and edited by Katie Davis (The Story, APM/WUNC, 2012)

The Ganges, a 1,500-mile river that flows through Northern India, is a place where people bathe, wash clothes and pray. It is also where waste lines pour out sewage every day. Producer Phoebe Judge travels to the city of Varanasi, where she meets people who live along the Ganges River and want to clean it up.

Special Thanks to Richard Steele for reading the show's open.
