Studs Terkel is legend in the world of public media. The late oral historian interviewed thousands of people from all walks of life during his lifetime. You could say he's a connoisseur of the human voice.
In this era of Auto-Tuned singing and electronic guidance systems and mic'd elementary school teachers, we can feel disconnected from each other. Human contact is a one-off. This animated short from StoryCorps shares one of Mr. Terkel's hope-filled stories about the power of the unfiltered human voice, a baby's voice, in our modern life.
