The story of Clyde Casey, a street performer who used surrealism and abstract art to fight crime on Los Angeles’ Skid Row in the 1980s, and the creator of a place called Another Planet.

The Treehouse
by Karen Duffin with Nick White (Unfictional, 2014)
In rural Crossville, Tennessee, you will find a peculiar mansion. It’s 15,500 square feet and eight stories high, and spans seven trees.It is the world’s largest tree house. This is the story of Horace Burgess, the man who made the tree house, and the price he had to pay for it.

Young Ruins
by Avery Trufelman with Sam Greenspan, Katie Mingle and Roman Mars (99% Invisible, 2014)
At the northwestern edge of San Francisco, right on the Pacific Ocean, is a curious jumble of concrete ruins. You wouldn’t know just looking at it, but this ruin is quite young. It’s what’s left of Sutro Baths, a palatial indoor swimming pool and amusement park built in 1898.

This special will air on Friday May 22nd at 10 AM and 8 PM.
