So amazing! Can't wait for more episodes. Love the pairing of the older Studs Terkel interviews with a contemporary voice. A real pleasure to listen to.

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!
