Episode 48: Dear City Letters

Way back in June, we put out a call for our listeners to submit Dear City Letters to help drum up some publicity for National Public Radio's State of the Re:Union paying a visit to our state. With the Dear City letters, people were invited to write a letter to their city, expressing love, anger, frustration, humor and beyond, addressing the likes and dislikes or breaking misconceptions. We passed the letters we received on to NPR. This podcast is our chance to finally play them.
