More and More Every Day
2.44. Your Philosophy on Shared Authority
May 20, 2021
It's the second season of the More and More Every Day Podcast. Join us every day for short (10 minute) episodes to talk all things oral history and challenge yourself with a daily oral history prompt.
Today's prompt: First, write your philosophy of shared authority when it comes to oral history work. I encourage you to do some research in developing your philosophy. Then, establish a plan for following this philosophy for every interview you conduct.
