My Bionic Hand

Lanie, Alex, and Eric Jones

One of my fondest memories of childhood is listening to my grandmother read aloud.  On long road trips, she would dive into detailed descriptions of Narnia or wow me with the latest detective work of Nancy Drew.  I can still remember vivid descriptions of Edward and Lucy being trapped in the wardrobe. And, I can hear Nancy "getting her man" and solving the case.

While it's not exactly the same experience, it is possible to listen to stories via the Internet.  Podcasting now makes it possible to record, share and replay conversations from just about anywhere.  It's yet another medium for sharing our messy, musical lives with one another.

Click on the link above to hear a short conversation between Eric Jones and his children Lanie and Alex.  In this piece, we get a glimpse into what it's like to have a father with a bionic hand. 

This true narrative comes from StoryCorps, an ambitious and beautiful project, to "provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives."  Could there be a better mission?!

Consider including audio podcasts in your storytelling repertoire, especially if you work with people who struggle with the written word.   (Literally) giving voice to your cause is another way to connect people to the soul of your work.
