Miami Valley StoryCorps

Miami Valley StoryCorps interviews are the result of WYSO’s collaboration with StoryCorps, the national oral history collection project that visited Dayton in the spring of 2010. All the Miami Valley StoryCorps segments consist of interviews between two local residents. Miami Valley StoryCorps interviews aired Wednesday mornings in 2010 and 2011.

Miami Valley StoryCorps wouldn't possible without the help of a group of volunteer editors we're affectionately calling EditingCorps: Liz Cambron, Chris De La Cruz, Nick Long, Sehvillan Mann, Katie Tilly, & Justin Vanderberg.

Bruce Geiger & Sarah Hewitt

“I have early onset of Alzheimer’s, and what that means is that I don’t always remember what I’ve just said. You could say that it’s tragic, or you could think it’s wonderful.”
