Fireside chats

From Academic Kids

The Fireside Chats were a series of 30 evening radio talks given by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt during his administration, between 1933 and 1944.

In an attempt to give Americans a feeling of more pride and hope in their country during the Great Depression, Franklin Roosevelt gave evening radio talks to the American public. These chats explained New Deal programs and gave people a sense of hope and security during difficult times. Roosevelt needed the American people to understand why he was doing the things he was doing and how his policies and government programs would eventually help the American economy and lift the shadow of the Depression.

During World War II, the Great Depression wound down but Roosevelt continued giving Fireside Chats, explaining major wartime policies to the American people.
