This hour: all things anonymous.

Someone's Screaming Outside
by Mad Genius (Re:sound debut, 2013)
Someone's Screaming Outside by the anonymous producer collective, Mad Genius, revisits the rainy Florida night George Zimmerman met Trayvon Martin, using only 911 calls from that evening and musical samples from YouTube videos reacting to the tragedy.

The Adventures of Hurricane Mike
by Mad Genius (Re:sound debut, 2013)
Part song, part narrative, and completely built from sampling media on the internet, The Adventures of Hurricane Mike tells one man's incredible survival story.

Anonymous: Just for the Lulz?
by Gabriella Lahti with sound engineer Steven Tilley (360 Documentaries, ABC RN, 2012)
The online group known as Anonymous has no leaders, no rules, no wrongs and no public face. Yet, they have made headlines around the world as hacktivists, fighting for the freedom of information, and against censorship, the church of scientology and homophobia, among other things.

The Wire
by David Weinberg (Wiretap, CBC, 2012)
For David Weinberg, secretly recording people started out as a sort of a hobby — a possible way to break into, of all things, public radio. Eventually it mutated into an obsession. And finally, in an odd twist of fate, this anonymous act became David's salvation.
