In 2015, the archive was pleased to partner with the Third Coast Audio Festival for their Short Docs competition. This yearly challenge, for both amateur and professional audio makers, paired a number of Studs Terkel Radio Archive programs with a set of rules for their stories:
Must be two to three minutes in length
Be titled with a question that begins with one of the five W's
Contain the question "And what happened then?"
Include a shout of silence or a cry with laughter.
We were very surprised with the submissions!
