American RadioWorks: Bridge to Somewhere

As talk about reinvesting in America's infrastructure continues to grow, some people are looking back to the public works projects of the New Deal as a model for thinking about how what a new "New Deal" might look like. American Radio Works has done a fine job of providing some perspective on this question in one of their recent documentaries, "Bridge to Somewhere". The program looks at the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Works Progress Administration, and the Public Works Administration. On the site, visitors can read transcripts of the segments dedicated to exploring each organization's legacy, complete with additional links to materials elsewhere on the web. Of course, visitors should listen to the complete program in its entirety, and they can also share the documentary with others via a number of social media sites, like Facebook and Twitter. Perhaps one of the most compelling features here is the section where reporter Catherine Winter talks about her own familial connection with the New Deal.
