Back in October, I was able to participate in StoryCorps and interview my father. If you haven’t heard of StoryCorps, or don’t know what it is, you can watch the short video below. Also, visit their website at www.storycorps.org to learn more. Here’s a short snippet from their About page:

StoryCorps’ mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world.

We do this to remind one another of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters. At the same time, we are creating an invaluable archive for future generations.

I had a lot of fun interviewing my dad and thought I’d share it with all of you!

I know he’s my father, so I’m biased, but I’ve always admired and looked up to him. It was a great experience getting to hear about what it was like for him growing up in Charleston, WV during the 60s and 70s, and also growing up with 9 other siblings in a house that’s less than 800 square feet!

It’s kinda long (40 minutes so you’ve been warned…) but I’d love to hear what you think!
