The Johnsmer/Siegelmans on NPR

Storycorps_2 Last summer, my friend Jules and I taped a 40-minute interview for the StoryCorps project when one of their mobile airstream trailer recording booths was in Burlington (photo of our recording session courtesy of Matthew Thorsen). I wrote about the experience in Seven Days, and an edited segment from the recording was on Vermont Public Radio.

Yesterday a producer from StoryCorps called to tell me that a different, re-edited segment will be aired on NPR next Friday, Dec. 29th, during the regular StoryCorps slot on Morning Edition. I think it airs between 8 and 9 a.m. Yay! We made the cut!

I would really love to read your blog, but the green border on the left of the page is obliterating most of the first word of every line. Could you please fix this overlap so that I can enjoy the blog too?

I have yet to hear this...is is online? replaying?

but wanted to let you know that a ton of people have been recently telling me about your story and saying how much they enjoyed it.

one person was like, "And then they said it was from Burlington Vermont and i felt SO PROUD!"

so congrats on a great and touching story that has been giving VTers a good name! now i hope i get to hear it!!!
