By Myself and With My Friends features work from Krista Birnbaum, Donna Conlon, Rivane and Sergio Neuenschwander, Connie Samaras, and Corinna Schnitt. Each video is about 3 to 5 minutes long (the longest being Schnitt's piece, which runs more than 20 minutes).
Spiak mentions small moments of reflection, like those when a person ponders to him or herself and reaches realization, and big moments of group action, like post-championship sports riots or the current revolution transpiring in the Arab world.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
