Origin Story

One fall evening an out of town friend brought his 6 year old son, Oliver to Vance’s podcast studio. Just for fun, they turned on the microphone and recorded Oliver, pretending that he was a guest on the podcast.

Vance asked him about what he wanted to be when he grew up, what he thinks his dad does for work, his interests, fears and his take on what was going on in the world. We wrapped up after 30 minutes. After they left, Vance edited the interview and sent a DVD of it to his dad.

A few months later, his dad called Vance “I just realized that if my house was on fire and I could only grab one thing- I would grab the DVD of Oliver’s interview with you. I wanted you to know how powerful this interview was that you gave me to have forever.”

Vance mentioned this experience on the podcast. Quickly, listeners started to reach out to see if Vance would schedule an interview with their loved one.

One of the guests ended up being a 65 year old man who recorded an interview for his daughters. A few weeks after we sent the recording, we heard back that he had developed Parkinson’s. His gratitude and insistence on the value of these recordings prompted us to develop these Legacy Interviews into a full business.

From the parent that wants to capture their child’s essence, to the soon to be newly weds, to the grandfather that wants to leave something behind; we take pride in helping people record the stories, wisdom and family values you want to leave behind.
