The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress is kicking off 2022 with the much-awaited third season of â€œAmerica Works,â€ a podcast series celebrating the diversity, resilience and creativity of American workers in the face of economic uncertainty. The new season, launched today, features riveting stories from a teacher and workers at a circus, a meat plant, a vineyard, and a now-closed Boeing factory, among others.Â The eight-episode series, part of the American Folklife Centerâ€™s ongoing â€œOccupational Folklife Projectâ€, aims to introduce listeners to a diverse range of voices and perspectives within the changing American workforce. Each 10-minute episode includes workers whose narratives add to the wealth of our shared national experience. The first episode is available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher and atÂ loc.gov/podcasts.Â Subsequent episodes will be released each Thursday through March 10, 2022.Click here for more information.
