Grand Bargain “Vox Pop” video on the Grand Bargain

Vox Pop was a popular radio program of interviews, quizzes and human interest features, sometimes titled Sidewalk Interviews (1936) and Voice of the People (the name is from the Latin “Vox Populi”, meaning “Voice of the People”). It was heard from the early 1930s to the late 1940s.

As we come down to the wire on the so-called “Fiscal Cliff,” BFP put together our own “Vox Pop” video on the Grand Bargain
