The holidays bring good food, lots of family, and fascinating tales. When families unite, storytelling takes center stage as we recall childhood memories and the ups and downs of life. On this edition of Up to Date, Steve Kraske talks with a personal historian and StoryCorps' David Isay about the process and significance of preserving family stories in preparation for the National Day of Listening


  • David Isay is the founder and president of StoryCorps, and the recipient of six Peabody Awards and a MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship.
  • Lili Shank is a personal historian at Voices In Time, a local business that captures family stories and memories through audio recordings.
