Re:sound #258 Tsunami Song

This hour, a deep dive into the anthem of the Confederacy, two different kinds of waves and a modern take on Romeo & Juliet.


The Song

By producers Chris Neary, Chiquita Paschal, and Saidu Tejan-Thomas and hosted by Jack Hitt and Chenjerai Kumanyika for Uncivil from Gimlet Media (2017)  

On this episode, the *Uncivil* team dig deep into ‘Dixie’, the anthem of the Confederacy only to find out that everything we thought we knew about the history of the song… was wrong.

Migraines & Tsunamis   

By Adrienne Lily (first appeared on Constellations in 2018)  

This is a non-narrative (but highly descriptive) piece about the prelude to suffering. It’s a play on expecting pain, on remembering pain and on the scales of suffering. Going through the warning signs of a tsunami and the nervous anticipation of an impending migraine. Part audio diary, part collage and part soundscape.

Romeo & Juliet

By Mira Burt-Wintonick and Cristal Duhaime for Pen Pals (2017)  

After their suicides, a posthumous textathon between Romeo and Juliet reveals he somehow wound up in Heaven, she in Hell. Can Juliet claw her way through the circles of Hell to join her Romeo or will she be stuck bunking with The Real Housewives of Inferno for good? Starring *Love's* Paul Rust and Noël Wells of Master of None.
