Moo and Oink
By Cher Vincent for The Nod from Gimlet Media
With a long-running TV commercial featuring a dancing cow and pig, Moo and Oink grocery stores were a staple for Chicago’s black South Side communities. But producer Cher Vincent digs a little deeper into the origins of these iconic stores.

Man Choubam (I am good)
By Sharon Mashihi for KCRW’s Unfictional and The Heart
Sharon Mashihi is a weirdo and refuses to conform to cultural standards, which has been hard on her relationship with her mom. But Sharon saw a chance to mend the strife when she bought a ticket to a cruise with Farhang Holakouee, a famous Iranian talk-show psychiatrist. Could therapy and sunshine fix their relationship?

'Man Choubam' won the 2018 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition Silver Award. To hear the full ceremony and read a transcript of Sharon Mashihi's acceptance speech, click here.
