The idea for Legacy Interviews was born one fall evening when Vance welcomed an old friend and his six-year-old son, Oliver, into his podcast studio. In a fun and lighthearted moment, they turned on the microphone and pretended to conduct a real interview with the young boy.
Vance asked Oliver questions about his life, such as his best friend, his father’s job, and his favorite place to visit. The 30-minute interview was edited and sent to the boy’s father in the form of a DVD.
A few months later, the father called Vance with a profound realization. In the event of a house fire, the first thing he would save would be the DVD of Oliver’s interview. This realization prompted Vance to share the story on his podcast, where listeners began reaching out to schedule interviews with their own loved ones.
One of these listeners was a 65-year-old man who recorded an interview for his daughters.
Unfortunately, he developed Parkinson’s disease just a few weeks after the interview was sent. Despite this setback, the man was grateful for the opportunity to capture his story and pass on his wisdom to his daughters.
Inspired by this man’s gratitude and the value he placed on the interview, Vance decided to turn Legacy Interviews into a full-fledged business. Today, Legacy Interviews offers a unique and personal service for people of all ages and backgrounds who want to preserve their life stories, family values, and wisdom for future generations.
