Even in the 21st century, radio reporters and producers still rely on some surprisingly low-tech tools like this cardboard box studio.
Josh Burnham

If you caught him in the act – say in a McDonalds parking lot – you might not know what he was up to. Lying in the back of his car, head inside a cardboard box, repeating the same phrase again and again.

“It definitely gets weird looks when I bring it out and sit in a parking lot and people just see me talking into this box.”

Join us for a free event previewing the the new PBS series "Mercy Street". We'll screen a preview reel of the first episode plus series extras. Then UM History Professor Anya Jabour, who is an advisor to the show, will share her experiences of being on the set during production and more.
