Is college worth it? Don't miss this ambitious half-hour program on student debt from those who know, IOU: Stories of Student Debt from Columbia College Chicago. How much do they know? Their class of documentary radio students holds a combined student debt of over $300,000. And that's normal.

IOU takes a wide-ranging look at this generation's most pressing financial problem, from stories about high school students beginning to grasp the reality of $54,000 yearly tuition, to living with debt, to the complexities of borrowing money… from friends.

Pizza Time by Alex Malmude for the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies

So much pizza... Taken by Flickr User rj3

Ah, the mysterious life of a pizza delivery man, finally captured in his natural habitat.  This documentary takes a smooth non-narrated path to tell the story of one man's evening at work, bringing the people what they need. We hop in and out of the car, meet customers, gossip, headbang, talk smack about our co-workers and just have a good time. Language Advisory for casual swearing!


Listen to another more recent feature of Alex Malmude's on TBDRadio, a show on WGXC. In it, a woman talks about her mixed feelings on being able to watch movies or tv whenever she wants.

If you love pizza as much as I do, I recommend visiting this Flickr photoset. If you weren't hungry before, you are now. PIZZA PIZZA PIZZA!
