Episode 46 – Sax Eno
SnapSessions! presents Episode 46, featuring an interview with video editor and Reality TV Producer Sax Eno. We also present an analysis and appreciation of Nicole Hannah Jones 1619 Project and take a look at the reactionary response to her book as well as “Critical Race Theory”.
Our SnapSessions! interview features long-time Reality TV editor, Sax Eno, who grew up in Mendocino in the 1980s and 90s and then left for an education in Film Studies at Chapman University in Orange County. There Eno learned from editors and other professionals in film and TV and then got his start as a junior editor on The Real World. Sax describes his work on a variety of shows from Project Runway to Joe Millionaire to Real Housewives of Orange County, educating us on the nuances of Reality TV. An absolutely fascinating ride for a kid who grew up in a water tower on Comptche Ukiah Rd. in Mendocino.
The episode opens with an analysis of the book The 1619 Project: A New Origin Story, by Pulitzer Prize winning author Nicole Hannah Jones, and looks at the intellectual and social movement of “Critical Race Theory”. We explore this progressive book of essays and poems on slavery, Jim Crow, and the hypocrisy of the Founding Fathers, giving us the point of view of the disenfranchised and voiceless. We also explore the negative responses to the book by the conservative community.”
