Vox Humana: The Studs Terkel Radio Archive

Planning for an interactive, interpretive website that would allow the public to access the nearly 5,000 oral histories conducted by journalist Studs Terkel as part of his long-running radio show.

The Studs Terkel Radio archive and story machine will create a free digital resource to engage the public with Studs Terkel's audio work, consisting of more than 7,500 radio programs. This interactive web tool will provide the capacity for anyone to engage with and share selections from the archive in new contexts: making new art, telling new stories, and reflecting on contemporary events.
