For this week’s Fiction Edition we end on a different note: an audio poem adaptation by Chicago-based radio producer Anthony Martinez, voiced by the poem’s author, Cristina Correa. “Backwash” is a tough lesson about the claustrophobic effects of the male gaze.




Anthony Martinez is a Production Assistant with WBEZ’s Sound Opinions. As an independent producer he’s produced works for Curious City and Life of the Law. In 2012 he was a recipient of The Association of Independent’s in Radio’s New Voice Scholarship.
