In conjunction with BobEdwardsRadio.com and our own BobEdwards.Info, over the next few weeks we’re going to post “the documentaries,” the special programs built to perform a deep-dive into a specific issue. Once they are posted here, the files will be made available to those two websites so they may update the existing links to the programs. It’s past-time these were available for those searching to hear them again.
While putting this together, I found it surprising how many of these programs hold up and are just as relevant today, like the first two-episode documentary from March of 2006; Dangerous Crossings. From the first program’s introduction:
For the next two days, the subject of this program is illegal immigration to the United States, a matter that inspires a number of passionate opinions. You will hear from leaders who set Immigration policy here in Washington, from the police force charged with stopping illegal immigrants, from humanitarians trying to save immigrants from dying in the desert, from others who want migrants & their employers punished more severely—and you’ll hear from the migrants themselves—who leave friends and family behind—and risk their lives—in hopes of someday sharing in the American dream.
This two-part documentary was produced by Chad Campbell. Script/roadmap also included below.
