Studs Terkel in the Onion

There is an interview in the Onion with the great Studs Terkel. I remember reading bits of Working in my grandmother’s house as a kid and being amazed at how fascinating ordinary people’s stories could be. Later on, I watched in fascination as those interviews were turned into dramatic monologues for PBS. In my entire career as an interviewer, I have this goal to be 1% of the interviewer that Mr. Terkel is.
