This first episode (the first of three as an overall general introduction) is about how I came to starting this podcast and my goals in sharing how to record an audio Life Story as tool for others to use in their lives.

In 2007 I started Your Story after discovering podcasting and realising that I could also produce a show, I just needed to think of the subject and learn the technology. Very quickly I realised that I have always loved talking to people and having them explain their life's to me. I wanted to know their story and that lead to Your Story.
Your Story is an online chat show which has enabled me to meet many wonderful people from all walks of life and experiences. It has managed to leaver me into communities as I travel and a reason to contact people I admire to have a chat.

This lead me to realising how powerful a tool audio recording is as a mechanism for capturing a longer version of someone's life as an audio biography. I applied this to the patriarch of my own family to gather the family story that he is the only one left to remember and share with the rest of our family on an accompanying web site.
