State of the RE:Union - Baltimore - Outsiders In

Row Houses in Baltimore

Airs Monday, October 15 at 8:00 p.m.  Baltimore is a city of many neighborhoods, of intense divides--racial, class, and otherwise--not easily overcome. It's a city bogged down by a reputation for crime, poverty and dysfunction--a reputation not entirely undeserved. But all of that overshadows the passion and dedication many Baltimoreans have for their city, and for taking on what's wrong with it in ways small and large. In this episode, we tell stories of people who are working from outside the system to take on Baltimore's problems and shepherd its promises into fruition.

State of the RE:Union - Vermont, The Small Town State

Airs Monday, November  at 8:00 p.m. Quaint storefronts along Main streets, covered bridges over clear streams, cows from dairy farms dotting green valleys: across the state, these are the iconic images of Vermont. But beyond its pastoral beauty, this is a place that prides itself on its independent spirit. This is truly a place where individual communities are self determining, where geographic isolation has forced people to get creative, and take their town's destiny into their own hands. In this hour, we'll hear a range of stories of the way Vermont's 'small town state' identity manifests.

State of the RE:Union - Southeastern Washington, The Unlikely Perfect Place

Airs Monday, October 29 at 8:00 p.m.  The Tri-Cities are Richland, Pasco and Kennewick, 3 cities clustered near one another in the vast plains and deserts of Washington state, to the east of the Cascade Mountains. It's a region that seems like it would have little to attract newcomers; it's largely remote, prone to dust storms, not close to any major city. But, over the decades, this area has drawn people from the world over, and, in this episode, we'll explore how and why. These are stories of people drawn to an unlikely place for myriad reasons,what drew them here and what communities they've built here.
