Are you interested in learning how to record your own oral histories? It’s not all that hard to do. You just have a conversation, while a recorder is running. But, if you want more information, check out my book Capturing Memories: How to Record Oral Histories.
I’ve now created three classes on the learning platform Skillshare based on the book. Skillshare is a fantastic resource for people who like to create. There are thousands of interesting classes to choose from.
The first class is all about interview techniques I learned from years of conducting interviews and its FREE!
The second class discusses the technical aspects of making the recording.
The third class is a discussion about what to leave in and what to take out when you are editing a story into a finished product.
