Initially, we hadn't planned to create episodes that, like this one, unpack and contextualize our audio dramas. But as our creative process unfolded, we began to understand that context is vital in understanding how all the stories in this season fit together. How is it that we're talking about hunger, even when we're not talking explicitly about hunger? In this episode, you'll meet the real-life Beatrice and Gregorio. You'll hear how their story evolved into the audio drama you heard in Episode 1, and how food insecurity is woven deeply into the life of their family. Written and narrated by Dan Froot, with Conching Matthews, Orinio Opinaldo, Frank Tamborello, and Hanna Garth. Music by Robert Een.
