Welcome to the first episode of our new podcast! Each episode of Life Preservers: A Personal History Podcast will feature interviews designed to help you think about personal history–what it is, how to do it, why to do it, and how personal histories create a correspondence with the future. In addition to the interviews, we’ll point you in the direction of blogs, books, and videos, tips and tricks that will guide you on the journey of creating and preserving your legacy and the legacies of people you love.
Many thanks to our first interview subject, the talented and adventurous Marcia Orland, for taking the time to tell us about her work and her path to preserving her own family history. Marcia is a professional personal video historian and owner of Afterglow Media based in Carpenteria, CA.
