When facts cannot plumb the depths, shall we lie? In this session, producers listen to and discuss radio documentaries that use fiction and dramatic elements to get to the truth.
After all, claims session leader and long-time audio adventurer Tom Lopez, it's only reality, and that's always up for grabs.
Tom Lopez has written and produced more than 150 hours of radio fiction. His most well-known work, Ruby, has aired on more than 600 stations in the U.S. and in 23 foreign countries. Lopez has worked as the director of public affairs for WUHY (now WHYY), has produced over 30 half-hour documentaries, and is president of ZBS Foundation, a nonprofit audio/radio production company.
