THE HEROICS OF BARBARA JORDAN, who is considered one of the great African-American civil rights leaders of America. Jordan rises to prominency in the mid-60‘s to become the first black woman in the Texas Senate; she later spearheads Nixon's impeachment.




THE ICONIC WIT OF MOLLY IVINS, about the sharp-tongued political writer’s late-in-life rise to fame as President George W. Bush’s most recognized critic, and is recognized as one of America’s great modern humorists. 

THE RISE OF ANN RICHARDS. In the late-80’s in Republican Texas, a brassy, white-haired mother of four defeats Clayton Williams, a foul-mouthed oilman, in a bare-knuckles governor's race. This radical feminist known for her twangy Southern-style oratory rises to national political stardom until her second-term defeat as governor by George W. Bush, which would first team Bush to Karl Rove.

Mirror, mirror on the wall.

BLUE CABIN STUDIOS is teaming up with TEXAS FOLKLIFE’S amazing program, STORIES FROM THE DEEP, which teaches radio to underserved youth. Documentary film and radio producer Deborah S. Esquenazi is slated to begin teaching this fall 2011. STORIES FROM THE DEEP is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts & Humanities Texas. Make Radio.
