imagine having a talk with someone from the past ...


Imagine having a conversation with a celebrated First Lady, a survivor of the Titanic disaster, or an aviation pioneer. Or delving deep into the story of a renowned department store or legendary film.

I give voice to stories from the past. As entertaining as they are educational, these programs bring history alive in a fun, inspiring and educational way.
