  3. Select from one of our conversation starters prompts or ask your own question.
  4. Start recording and share your stories!
  5. When you have a recording, attach the recording file to an email with the topic of your story or memory, about when the memory took place (e.g., 1950s, every Christmas, etc.), and who shared it and who listened (e.g., grandparent to grandchild, friends with friends, etc.), and email it to
