Re:sound #216 The 2015 ShortDocs Show — Studs Rules
This hour we listen to some of our favourite entries to the 2015 Third Coast Short Docs Challenge: Studs Rules!
For our 2015 Studs-inspired Challenge we partnered with the Studs Terkel Radio Archive at WFMT.
With their help, we came up with the following rules: Your radio story must... • be two to three minutes in length • be titled with a question that begins with one of the five Ws • contain the question "And what happened then?" • and include a shout of silence or a cry of laughter
