Vance Crowe, Legacy Interview Founder

Capturing Family Stories for Future Generations

The Birth of Legacy Interviews: 

In an unexpected twist of fate, Vance Crowe, host of a popular podcast, discovered a unique service that would resonate with hundreds of people across the United States and Canada. One day, a podcast listener, accompanied by his young son, dropped by to deliver a book. The boy, recognizing Vance as “the guy on dad’s radio!”, was thrilled.

Vance, invited the young boy to participate in an impromptu podcast recording. This interaction, engaging and heartfelt, would become the foundation of Legacy Interviews.

Creating Unforgettable Memories: The First Legacy Interview

In Vance’s home studio, the six-year-old boy was asked about his life, his friends, and his view of his dad’s profession. The resulting interview was precious, a candid and authentic snapshot of a child’s perspective. After editing it like a professional podcast, Vance sent a copy to the dad.

The dad later revealed “if my house were on fire that interview is the one thing I’d save.”

This profound revelation emphasized the immense value of these personal narratives, compelling Vance to offer this service to a wider audience.

Legacy Interviews Takes Off: Preserving Personal Histories

Vance shared this heartwarming story on his podcast and introduced the concept of Legacy Interviews, offering to record private interviews as unique Christmas gifts. To his surprise, the response was overwhelming. The demand skyrocketed beyond his expectations, cementing the need for such a service.

Legacy Interviews became a way for people to capture and preserve their stories, values, and experiences for future generations to know their family history. Most often, these interviews are purchased for parents or grandparents. However, some individuals choose to record their own stories, ensuring their legacy is passed down.

Furthermore, Vance now offers a specialized service to help business owners and executives elucidate their company’s worth to potential buyers, enabling a comprehensive understanding of the firm’s value. This expansion not only enhances business prospects, but also seamlessly aligns with the core mission of preserving and communicating unique narratives.
