StoryCorps in Garden City: Lydia Gonzalez

By Ramona McCallum

Garden City, KS – We've been announcing on KCUR that StoryCorps' mobile recording booth will be arriving this week in Kansas City. It's an airstream trailer equipped as a studio, where people are invited to interview someone they love. Interviews are archived with the Library of Congress, and excerpts will air on KCUR and nationally, on NPR. Opening day is Thursday in the City Market, our own Walt Bodine will be one of the first to be interviewed.

But before Kansas City, the trailer stopped in Garden City, Kansas. Here's an interview recorded there, with activist and Garden City native Lydia Gonzalez. The story was produced by High Plains Public Radio.

StoryCorps arrives in Kansas City this week. Advanced reservations for interviews are filled, but additional slots will be available on opening day, August 31st.

KCUR serves the Kansas City region with breaking news and award-winning podcasts.
