The Story

The Story was a daily radio show produced by North Carolina Public Radio WUNC from 2006 to 2013. It featured host Dick Gordon interviewing ordinary people about personal stories from their lives.

People tell stories all the time, but unless you're a politician or celebrity, you probably won't have the chance to share your story with the world. In a culture of the 24-hour news cycle, it's easy to forget how much we can learn about current events simply by talking with one another, and listening.

For eight years, from early 2006 to November 22, 2013, we made a daily radio show dedicated to doing just that.

We met people from all over the world, of all ages. Most shows began with a long-form conversation between Host Dick Gordon and the day's guest.

Unlike any other public radio show, we enjoyed a robust collaboration with independent radio producers and storytellers, putting “on the radio” stories and voices otherwise only heard online.
