Mark Street’s Work Songs
Play • 1 hr

Elise and Chris talk with director Mark Street, whose latest film is Work Songs, which travels across the country talking with ordinary working folks; cab drivers, a farmer, longshore-women, a barista. Inspired by the work of the great Studs Terkel, Work Songs is a kaleidoscopic portrait of the United States at work as we face threats from automation, the gig economy and the decline of unions.
