America Works Podcast Documents the American Workforce
The Library of Congress Blog announced the following:
The American Folklife Center [AFC] is bringing the voices of workers throughout the country to listeners with ‘America Works,’ a new podcast series that celebrates the diversity and tenacity of the American workforce during a time of economic crisis and transition.
Each 10-minute episode of ‘America Works’ introduces listeners to a worker whose first-person narrative adds to the wealth of our shared national experience. The first four episodes are now available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher and at loc.gov/podcasts. A new episode will be released weekly and featured on the Library’s social media channels beginning Thursday, Sept. 10. …
Each “America Works” episode is based on an interview from the AFC’s ongoing Occupational Folklife Project, a multi-year initiative to document the culture of contemporary American workers during an era of economic and social transition. Over the past 10 years, fieldworkers have compiled almost 1,000 interviews from across the country, documenting the experiences of more than 100 professions.
