My parents returned to California today after a three week visit on the East Coast. Early on during their visit we sat and talked about about their lives in the USSR for about an and broadcast our conversation on DS106Radio. We had a good number (in DS106Radio terms) of listeners in the US and Canada, many of whom tweeted questions and comments to my parents and myself and helped drive the conversation along. This is oral history gone social. (Giulia Forsythe made this great Storify story with some of the images and tweets from that session.) Listening to this again now makes me regret not doing more of these broadcasts while my parents were here. Needless to say, however, there will be more when I’m back in California in December. Enjoy. Feel free to leave comments on the timeline at Soundcloud, which will appear below. And if you haven’t already, take a listen to the first broadcast we did, which focused on our experience immigrating to the US in 1979.
