For my assignment this week I created a multi narrative podcast. I interviewed three of my family members and asked them to tell me the same story about how my parents got their marriage license. I chose this story because it was one that has been repeated in my household growing up. I think it is interesting how my siblings and I have taken the stories that my parents have shared with us and made them our own. I wanted to test how the validity of these stories would hold across generations. Thus I separately interviewed my dad, mom and sister and then compiled the interviews together into one cohesive story. I really enjoyed making this podcast. I found it interesting where their stories overlapped and where I found discrepancies. They all made similar notes of embellishment like the blood on my dad’s white coat and the fact that my dad was so busy he couldn't get a hair cut. These repetitions in their stories were the most interesting to record. I can imagine this being a series where family members tell the same story and they stories are compared through edits like I did here. I think this could be a fascinating way to track story telling across generations.
