As America endures the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, the hardships our grandparents and great grandparents lived through are suddenly relevant again. In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, stories from the Great Depression – advice from the generation that survived the old hard times. Also, celebrating the WPA. And, Woody Guthrie's unpublished love songs.
The current economic crisis has Americans talking across the generations to share memories and get some advice, including Steve Paulson who had this conversation with his mother Lisa after she sent him a two page list of "Frugal Ways."
Jonatha Brooke is a singer and songwriter who was invited by Woody Guthrie's daughter to visit her famous father's archives and use some of his unpublished material. The result is an album called "The Works."
