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.
