17. Ship of State
Feeling compelled to mark another anniversary, Never Forget Radio explores an unusual 9/11 memorial, the USS New York - a US Navy ship built with steel from the World Trade Center. Features 1940s power-narrators, Jacqueline the submarine, big sticks, tragedy branding, drone advertising, and a magic sword.
Music by Andrew Keller & No One and the Somebodies.
Last year’s episode and visual art project, a tribute to the Tribute in Light by Miles Donovan and Never Forget Radio.

The Manhattan Project, by Miles Donovan and Never Forget Radio
Imagining the Tribute in Light not just as a specific and temporary memorial to 9/11 (an event whose significance will only decline with time) but as a fantastical, ahistorical, timeless memorial to many lost New Yorks.
