Episode 3 - Sarah Dziedzic

In this episode I talk to my former boss about a project I did some work on! Sarah Dziedzic was the lead interviewer and project manager of the Institute for Research on Women, Gender, and Sexuality's (IRWGS) oral history project at Columbia University. In this episode she discusses what happens when the people in the project don't understand what you're going to do, what it's like doing an institutional project when the institution itself is radical, and why she enjoys working with students.

Episode 2 - Erica Seltzer-Schultz

The second episode is now available! I chat with Erica Seltzer-Schultz, another Minneapolis-based oral historian, about her project, Behind the Blue Line: Stories of Police Brutality, Abuse and Misuse of Power. She discusses what led her to this project, and how she navigates the immediacy of the topic. She also discusses the involvement of other community groups, and her specific way of making the audio and transcripts accessible online.
