This week for the show, I went to the Missouri State Fair and all you’re getting is this audio postcard.
First, I talked to Marlys Peck, who, along with her family, has been selling corn dogs at the fair for more than 41 years. Every year, Peck and her parents spend the state-fair week under the same tree near the historic Womens Building.
The 10th annual True False Film Fest is in the bag.
This year's festival screened more than 40 films over four days, and was punctuated by original music from the festival's official troupe of buskers, a rambunctious parade, outrageous costumes, and pleasantly crowded cafes filled with locals, visitors, filmmakers, and international accents.
As usual, True False also brings inspiration. And because of the subject matter of the films, it can be an emotionally intense weekend amidst the revelry, as KBIA's Sidney Miller captured in her audio postcard from the festival.
