“I think for us that’s one reason why we are so close, and it’s one of the reasons why we’re engaged in advocacy and that we fight for this community is that we’re honoring our mom’s life. But for the chance to sit down and unpack that and talk about that, I think we’re going to leave even more close and with a better understanding of one another than I could have ever imagined.”

Linda Chapin, the first mayor of Orange County, also recorded a conversation with her granddaughter.

Any two people with a story to tell — from family members and friends to neighbors and coworkers — can participate in the first stop of StoryCorp’s national Mobile Tour in Orlando.

Conversations usually last about 40 minutes and are facilitated by a StoryCorps team member. Afterward, participants can choose to share their story on WMFE and national NPR or add it to StoryCorps archives at the Library of Congress.

All slots for interviews are currently full, but you can still add your name to the wait list by clicking on the link. And if you won’t be able to visit the MobileBooth, learn more about using the app.
