The film starts with NPR first and only historian - Julie Rogers. Seeing their day to day work as a oral historian transformed into a documentary reminds us why we do is important and why it matters to people beyond ourselves at NPR. An oral history isn't a magazine or podcast or a TV segment, and it isn't quickly consumed. Often, an oral history is long and slow and demands a radical one of listening from its audience. Though the film, let's follow the lives of two oral historians who feel passionate about their professional life.
