After Nick Bridwell of Plano Magazine interviewed us for an upcoming story, we turned the tables and interviewed him. Listen in on the conversation, in this bite-sized Plano Podcast Extra.
Does the early bird REALLY get the worm? Does “early to rise” truly make you healthy, wealthy and wise? For some answers, we dragged ourselves out of bed before the crack of dawn to talk to some Plano early risers. By the time the rest of us are awake, they’ve been up for hours. Find out what they’ve been doing and how it affects their careers, bodies and minds.
Twenty years ago, we were in the middle of the Plano heroin crisis. Before it was over, nineteen teens and young adults in Plano were dead – killed by heroin overdoses. We tracked down those who were brave enough to say, “My name is Plano. I’m an addict” and to tackle the crisis. This is the extraordinary story of the Plano heroin shutdown.
In Plano, the holidays get hilarious with Theatre Britain’s annual panto production. This episode opens the curtain to a raucous family holiday treat. It’s a fractured fairy tale called the “panto,” and it’s performed every year by Theatre Britain in downtown Plano. The Plano theater company’s production features all the traditional elements – the dame who’s actually a guy, a ghostly cameo, and lots of audience participation. We go behind the scenes to hear from the director and meet some of the actors, plus, an extensive wrapup with performing arts critic Mark Lowry of TheaterJones, who weighs in on growing diversity of theater and arts productions in Plano.
