The People's Recorder

The People's Recorder is a national podcast on the 1930s Federal Writers' Project: what it achieved, where it fell short, and what it means for Americans today. In premier audio storytelling, we explore stories of American life first recorded by workers on the FWP and contemporary stories that echo with them.

Brought to you by the award-winning Spark Media (Soul of a People: Writing America's Story).


With support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Florida Humanities, Virginia Humanities, Wisconsin Humanities, California Humanities, and Humanities Nebraska.
