This intimate documentary is a fitting tribute to the fiery spirit of Studs Terkel: Pulitzer Prize winning author, storyteller par excellence and Chicago radio legend.

It begins with Terkel on his soap box in Bughouse Square and features archival footage of Studs at WFMT radio, at his home in Uptown, and with his longtime friends, authors Mike Royko and Nelson Algren. It spans fifty years of Terkel's life, starting with the groundbreaking Studs' Place (1949-51), which helped to define the 'Chicago School of Television,' to Studs in his 90th year. The program was written and produced by noted independent video producer Tom Weinberg, who worked with Terkel for a quarter century.
