StoryCorps San Joaquin
In 2020, Valley Public Radio was proud to partner with the groundbreaking personal history project StoryCorps in welcoming the organization's annual tour to Fresno and Bakersfield. While the tour's visit was cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic, dozens of local residents recorded their stories in the StoryCorps MobileBooth – an Airstream trailer converted into a mobile recording studio at the Community Media Access Collaborative (CMAC) in downtown Fresno. Now Valley Public Radio is producing a podcast and broadcast series featuring highlights from these recordings, StoryCorps San Joaquin. Hear the segments on Valley Edition, as well as on KVPR.org and as a podcast.
StoryCorps San Joaquin is sponsored by The Kharazi Foundation, Assemi Real Estate and Bitwise Industries:
