In thinking about the wire I thought about the setting and location which was chosen for the show. I thought to myself it wasn’t for the raw emotion of the city of Baltimore and the carefully chosen locale …I doubt that the Wire would have been as successful as it was. Also take for instance, some of the “real,” characters. For example those characters of Omar and Avon Barksdale were based on actual characters who resided in the Baltimore area with similar backgrounds. So I was thinking for a portion of a radio show we could talk about real life factors which must be taken into consideration when making a relatively realistic and raw show such as The Wire.
