Ways to Connect

I’m Jennifer Moore, senior news producer here at KSMU. As part of StoryCorps’ "National Day of Listening," I decided to interview my grandmother, Gloria Eberhardt Mettler, who is now 88 years old, and living in Bakersfield, California. Join us throughout the rest of this week, at 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., as other KSMU staff members interview their loved ones. Again, we encourage you to set aside a few moments this Friday, November 28, and record a conversation of your own with a loved one. And remember, everyone has a story to tell.
