Description

History comes alive as we revisit important moments in American culture with interviews from the archives of the inimitable 20th-century broadcaster and oral historian Studs Terkel. Host Eve Ewing guides us through the Studs Terkel Radio Archive and pairs each piece of archival audio with an interview with a contemporary thinker, intertwining the past and the present. Dust off your soapbox, open your ears, and come down to the Bughouse Square. Bughouse Square with Eve Ewing is produced by the WFMT Radio Network and made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: exploring the human endeavor.

Customer Reviews

Thank You!

To all involved in producing this project. Thank you! What a pleasure and a joy!

Expanding my book list

I love this podcast as its given me a slew of new readings, new perspective on old, and overall I'm really enjoying how Eve ties in aspects of the interviews to the world we live in today because a lot of those interviews, stories etc. are still alive and relevant in different people. Keep up the great work Eve!

Terrible

I've long looked forward to the day when Studs Terkel's show would be available as a podcast. Unfortunately, Bughouse Square took Studs' classic, brilliant interviews and ruined them. Instead of making Studs' show available in its unedited version, Bughouse Square consists of Eve Ewing interjecting herself into strangely edited versions of Studs' show at every opportunity. She tacks on her own unnecessary and interminable intro that adds nothing but tedium. Then bizarrely, Ewing actually interrupts the flow of Terkel's interview to insert her own commentary in the most jarring way. Ewing's annoying interruptions totally break the spell of losing oneself in the conversation that Studs masterfully orchestrated. Please lose Ewing and publish the unedited versions of Studs' show without any commentary! Listening to Bughouse Squarein its current form is like looking at the Mona Lisa after somebody's come along with crayons and drawn their own pictures all over it. Extremely disappointed.
