Listening on the edge

This week, we’re excited to bring you another podcast, featuring Mark Cave, Stephen M. Sloan, and Managing Editor Troy Reeves. Cave and Sloan are the editors of a recently published book, Listening on the Edge: Oral History in the Aftermath of Crisis, which includes stories of practicing oral history in traumatic situations from around the world. Here, they discuss the process of putting the book together, the healing potential of oral history, and the ways oral historians can take care of themselves when recording difficult interviews. Enjoy the interview, and send us your proposals if you’d like to share your work with the OHR blog.
