9/29/11: StoryCorps and the Art of Oral History

Salt Lake City, Utah – Thursday, Doug is joined by StoryCorps' David Isay for a conversation about the art and the techniques of oral history. StoryCorps is a project that records stories from Americans of walks of life - funny stories, heart-wrenching stories. Isay says that listening is the central element. In fact, he calls listening "an act of love." We'll talk about some of his favorite StoryCorps moments - and about how you can go about collecting your own stories from the people that matter most to you.
