Thinking Aloud
Preparing Oral Histories, with Don Norton
What does it really take to record our lives? Who should be doing it? What life does not contain a story worth preserving? Editor Don Norton wants us all to expand our vision, to enlarge the scope of our efforts to preserve our stories. Capturing an oral history is more than just putting pen to paper, turning on the tape recorder, or asking questions. It's an art. But it's an art you can learn.—Original airdate: 10/23/2006
