Salt Lake City, UT – Independent radio producer David Isay worried that the stories collected for the Story Corps project would eventually get repetitive and would only be interesting to the people participating. The national oral history project is now in its fifth year though, and Isay says there's an "astonishing array" of stories. David Isay - whose documentary work has earned him five Peabody Awards, an Edward R. Murrow Award and a MacArthur Genius Award - joins Doug to explain why listening is an act of love.
