We are beyond excited to kick off Season Two with our episode, Las Vegas: Bright Lights, Big City, Small Town. The episode takes you away from the Strip that is so synonymous with the city and into the heart of the community. One of the stories actually goes beneath the casinos and the glitz of the Strip where another world exists. In the tunnels built as a flood channel several miles beneath Las Vegas, several hundred people make their home. We speak with members of an organization, Shine a Light, that go into the tunnels and work with the people that have made them their home in an effort to get them out.
Look Good, Do Good!
SOTRU has teamed up with clothing line and record label, Ropeadope, to produce a line of T-shirts that captures the essence of locations that we’ve visited, designed by celebrated artists from the area and benefiting a local charity. Las Vegas is our first shirt and part of the proceeds go to Shine a Light.
When you visit our Las Vegas page, you’ll be able to listen and download the full episode and check out some of the additional collateral like Letters to the City, images and links to the organizations that helped make the episode possible. There is also a place to comment about the episode. We would love to hear what you have to say about it!
