I want to encourage you all to listen to This American Life, last weeks show. There are interviews that Studs Terkel did on the Great Depression… it is a wonderful show! It also touches on the election.
This American Life, presented by Chicago Public Radio, is an award-winning radio program as well as a television program on the Showtime network. Hosted by Ira Glass, we feature first-person stories and short fiction pieces that are touching, funny, and surprising.
