Meteor City - Madelyn Dorta
Sometimes, when you visit a place, it is electrifying. It’s a place that digs deep into your soul, into your bones, until it shows up in your art. Join us as we talk with Madelyn Dorta about Meteor City, and its inspiration in the city of Detroit, right here on Radio Drama Revival.
Content Warning: Discussions of the effects of gentrification on communities of color, racism in entertainment, and the reality of Detroit after the 2008 economic crisis.

If you are looking for ways to support or donate to Native communities, the Quileute are fundraising to move their at-risk community to higher ground, and out of the tsunami zone, so that their culture and heritage can thrive for generations to come. Their first objective is to move the Quileute Tribal School, which is currently located right next to the beach, endangering the lives of children and the future of the Quileute tribe.
