“There’s no end in sight . . . no hope. I get sick to the very soul of me when I look upon the faces of our young people. They’ve been dispossessed—cheated out of their chance.” Thus starts The National Youth Administration: A Radio Drama by Herb Meadow. Written in 1937, this is a series of vignettes embodying the effects of the Great Depression on youth (roughly 15-25 yrs. old), and the various interventions of the National Youth Administration (part of the Works Progress Administration): Story mixed with History in ways that seem eerily current.
