Here you'll hear a collection of contest entries, short projects, and things that don't quite fit anywhere else.
This piece was produced for the Third Coast International Audio Festival's 2013 short docs competition. The theme was appetite. The piece had to include in its title one of the five tastes. In addition, the story had to be told in three "courses" and be no longer than 3 minutes. Alex Lane is a videographer living in Paducah, Ky. who has no sense of smell. Shelly and Rebecca invited him to cook five alarm chili to see if the heat would awaken any sort of olfactory sparks. Listen in and see what happened.
