Food for Thought
Real to Reel’s Gloria Nussbaum is featured in this five-minute radio story about personal history on Prime Time Postscript – AARP.
Read what Gloria has to say about why we’re hesitant to record voices on the APH blog.
What is Personal History?
A Personal History is the recorded stories of your life.
- Only YOU can describe what it was like to grow up in your small town.
- Only YOU can describe why you just had to have that 1964 Mustang.
- Only YOU know what it was about that guy in your History class who caught your eye.
The answers to these and other questions are your personal history.
“I believe the soul is contained in the voice.”
–Dave Isay, founder of Story Corps, on his passion for capturing oral histories
This is my belief as well and it is why I specialize in Personal Histories that preserve
the actual voice of the storyteller.
