Salt Stories: "It's a Dirty Job”
Ten groups of Salt Institute for Documentary Studies students visited the Oxford County Fair in Oxford, Maine and each found their own story to tell. Part 9 looks at the man with the dirtiest job at the fair.
"Port-O-Potties are a basic necessity at many outdoor public events. All of us have used them, and we all have opinions about them. Yet we rarely consider that someone has to clean them. That someone is Ric Downing. He has a few opinions of his own." — Producers Brian Gersten and Gabe Grabin
Salt Stories features the work of students at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies, a 15-week educational program training aspiring writers, radio producers, and photographers in the art of nonfiction storytelling.
