On November 16, [True] Stories hosted a wonderful talk by Daniel Horowitz Garcia, the Southeast regional manager of StoryCorps. Horowitz Garcia, who is based in Atlanta, came to Rollins for this interactive talk during which participants learned about the motivation (and beauty) behind a media company facilitating oral histories interviews, as well as how to be better interviewers themselves. We live streamed this talk via the [True] Stories YouTube Channel, and you can watch it below. Enjoy!
He also recommended the following podcasts (as well as some resources you can check out in our Library):
The Other Side of the Mic — an oral history podcast by Kate Brenner
HowSound — “A bi-weekly podcast on radio storytelling produced by Rob Rosenthal for PRX and Transom.”
Press Record — the Southern Oral History Program’s podcast “about the joys and challenges of learning history by talking to those who lived it.”
