Auld Lang Syne & SOTRU’s Fab Five
By State of the Re:Union
In celebrating the official last week of 2011, State of the Re:Union’s staff members share their five favorite episodes, stories or moments found in the SOTRU’s 2011 seasons. (Click here for a SOTRU reference guide, or just to hear your favorites again.)
The ever-awesome, awe-inspiring and talented Brie Burge keeps SOTRU on track and things running smoothly as SOTRU’s business manager, info hub and multimedia producer. Brie gave us not only her fab five, but what made them endearing to her:
Las Vegas - Gave me a different look at the Vegas most of us know.
Birmingham – Al’s writing is amazing in this episode, giving us a real look at race.
The Bronx - People that don’t give up and work hard to make their neighborhood a better place (Hetty Fox and Jahlove)
MS Gulf Coast - Gives us a picture of the long-lasting effects of the oil spill, after the national media has packed up and left town.
Sacramento – The Kings story is my absolute favorite of the entire season. Also love the Winter Sanctuary/homeless pedicures story.
One of SOTRU’s producers extraordinaire is the incredibly fantastic Tina Antolini. She helped create not only some awesome episodes, but Tina contributed posts and updates on some of the people, places and stories explored in the episodes. Anyone who can make pigs brain appealing - all right, maybe she sold me more on the pots de creme - has to be phenomenal. (You can find out more from the Cleveland episode.)
Tina’s fab five are:
