StoryCorps facilitators witnessed this lovely sunset during a hike in Olympic National Park.
StoryCorps has arrived in Seattle!
As the sun set over the Mississippi we pulled into St. Louis, MO.
Pictured here is Mike Mundy, the man who was kind enough to repair the mobilebooth wheelchair ramp.
Studs sat down in the booth and shared some wonderful stories with us. Among so much else, he explained how technical blunders can sometimes be an asset, bemoaned the waning presence of the human voice in our culture, and told of a bus-stop confrontation during which he convinced a self-proclaimed anti-unionist that Labor Day should be celebrated.
At 93, Studs still has a mind like a trap, an encyclopedic knowledge of history and, seemingly, the ability to recall every person he’s ever interviewed. As he says, "Curiosity didn’t kill this cat!"
Thank you deeply for your hospitality, advice and constant inspiration, Studs!
