The Working Tapes of Studs Terkel
I’ve shared my love for Studs Terkel before. In my mind, he represents the best of what journalism can be: humble and engaging real stories that reveal a larger truth, or truths, from something unexpected. I say with humility it's the kind of work I've aimed to replicate in my studio visits.
The Kitchen Sisters, near gods in the podcast realm, have taken a dive into the tape he recorded while creating his famous book Working. Its a 35-minute or so listen, and I wish it was much much longer.
