“Someone recently said to me, ‘Truly listening can be a radical act.’ I believe that. That’s why I’ve always loved teaching people how to interview and do oral histories.”
Lisa Morehouse gives participants the tools to collect personal stories. Over three sessions, participants will listen to interviews, craft questions and consider putting interviewees at ease, and share (or problem-solve) with each other.

Lisa Morehouse is an award-winning public radio reporter and editor focusing on food, agriculture, and the people who make both possible. She produces California Foodways, a county-by-county exploration of stories at the intersection of food, culture, history, economics, labor and the environment. The stories air on KQED’s The California Report Magazine, and national shows like All Things Considered, Here and Now, The World, and The Splendid Table. The series received a national Edward R. Murrow Award and two James Beard nominations. An editor at KALW, Morehouse also teaches audio production to high school and college students.
