Announcement - Record Family Holidays on Zoom!

November 24, 2020

This is not an episode so much as an announcement: it's holiday time and that means it's time for taking folklore! But, with the increased need to stay home and separate, and with more people than ever relying on devices and video chat to communicate with family, why not see this as an opportunity to use to not only communicate, but to record family members telling stories? Look to your elders. Show photos. Ask questions. Find out everything that you can NOW, while the focus is on family, safety, and reflection. Below (at please find a terrific video I found on YouTube, a step-by-step how-to on recording Zoom calls.

Enjoy the holiday season, buckle up for a cold and long Winter, and stay safe. Keep in touch with your family and help your elders to understand how much you value their knowledge and stories.
