State of the Re:Union with Al LetsonAudio currently not available for this program.
Tucson, Arizona -- You can't live in Tucson without constantly thinking about borders. The Sonoran desert is divided by a fence at the U.S.-Mexico border. Tucson is a liberal bastion separated from the rest of a staunchly conservative state. And the city itself is criss-crossed by highly charged boundaries cultural, economic and political. We take listeners to this desert city to hear stories about dividing lines, and what happens when people cross them: sometimes risking their lives, and sometimes their reputations ... and once in a while, against the odds, finding harmony in difference.
