Folkstreams!

McSweeney’s recommends it, and so must I. Folkstreams is a website with free streaming documentaries about all kinds of “American Roots Cultures.” It’s a national preserve! You can search for something, browse by subject, or browse by region. So for instance, I tried browsing under “Narrative & Verbal Arts” and found an eighteen-minute long documentary about girls’ playground games at a LA school called “Pizza Pizza Daddy-O.” Neat! I’ll let y’all know if I find anything else interesting! If you’re an educator, there is also a teacher’s portal on the website with lesson planning ideas.
