State of Jefferson Storytime

Everyone has a story to tell and that story is magic.

Your story can inspire, educate, motivate.

Our stories can be as exciting as a crime drama and as compelling as a radio show.

We want your story.

This is the State of Jefferson podcast, a living audio archive of our members, their accomplishments and the stories they have to tell.

Every week we will post a new story on the website. This is not your standard interview. This is your story.

This is how it works:

  • First, schedule a time that we can talk. It only takes 10 – 15 minutes but we will block out a half-hour.
  • We will ask you to submit a brief written bio, a couple of sentences similar to what a presenter might say to introduce you for a speech. We’ll send you a template that might help. This is what we will use to introduce you.
  • I’ll send you a link to Ringr, it’s an app you can add to your mobile phone or you can use your computer. Really easy to use and totally secure.
  • When the time comes, we call each other, using the app and just talk.
  • Thats it!

What if I don’t have a story?

This is your time and your story can be anything. Something that happened, something you experienced, an accomplishment, something or someone who inspired you. It could be from your travels, a vacation, a family event, a family story. It could be a story you heard or read that means something special to you. Anything at all. Its easy, just a conversation.

Of course we can’t publish anything inflammatory, political, raciest or derogatory towards another person, that would go against everything Rotary stands for. So you can say what you like, but we reserve the right to post it or not.

So pick a time and date below and lets get started.
