Usually I’m on the interviewing side of oral history work. HERE I’m receiving questions from Ben Cawthra of Cal. St. Fullerton’s Center for Oral and Public History, where I gave the annual Hansen Lecture in Fall 2017. In a good oral history interview, not intended for broadcast but for posterity, the questions are deeper than ones from media. This edited podcast provides glimpses of this process. Cawthra got out of me things I’m not sure I’ve said before, especially about my hometown of Washington, N.C. and my high school.
