30 years ago, Oprah Winfrey made her big debut on television. While it may not seem like that to us now, considering her status as a part-book Midas, part-therapist and part-lady who gave people free cars, it wasn't always easy.
In this mini podcast series by WBEZ, Making Oprah, host Jenn White traces the show's awkward beginnings, Oprah's rise on daytime television and what the show meant to people who worked on it.
In just 3 episodes (plus 3 bonus ones), Making Oprah talks to producers, competitors, publicists and even Oprah herself. Check it out: https://goo.gl/OJqdT3
