Who needs the Academy Awards when you have the Third Coasties?

Re:sound Host Gwen Macsai sits down with winners of the 2010 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition awards to hear choice bits of their prize-winning work, mine the stories behind their stories, inquire about their inspirations and ask about, of course, what mics they used!
