Episode 1: Recording My Child’s Voice

In this episode of the Personal Element podcast, Jeanne Bonner reads her essay about recording her child’s voice, which was originally published in the New York Times. The essay touches on themes of motherhood, the ephemeral nature of childhood, and how parents capture this special time. 

After the essay, Christine and Tavi discuss the craft of the essay–such as how Jeanne deepens it  with some personal revelations, and what makes the essay perfect for audio– as well as the subject matter.
