State of the Reunion


    

Host Al Letson takes you on a journey of the new Americana.

With so much talk about "community," sometimes we lose perspective on the real stories of the people working to make homes, lives, and neighborhoods across the country. In State of the Re:Union, Public Radio Talent Quest winner Al Letson travels the country to find those stories -- and tells them with grace, perspective, and deep curiosity. SOTRU explores the resonating themes, stories, challenges and cultural components that create communities across the country and celebrate the commonality that links us as a people.
