Friday, 3/19

Today we took a quiz over Preface I and Preface III, as promised.

We discussed unions in America during the 20th Century a bit, and talked about how we can tell how Studs Terkel feels about different kinds of work. We then listened to a radio essay from This American Life, where host Ira Glass joins a trio of New York City sanitation workers on their route. [If you weren’t in class, click the link, click on “Stream Episode.” The essay we listened to is from around the 4 minute mark to around the 17 or 18 minute mark.]
