WPSU is traveling to towns across central and northern Pennsylvania to collect oral history recordings. In October, we stopped in DuBois. Jenny Lisak talked with Carol Houser, her best friend of 51 years, about their time together in Catholic school, their time working in predominantly male professions, and their current fears about fracking in their town.

I went to Catholic school and it was funny for me to be reminded of nun’s throwing erasers but I didn’t think it was nice to laugh at a nun breaking a student’s arm.  This was a rather negative recording; maybe not appropriate for StoryCorp, anyway it was disappointing to me and not what I wanted to hear first thing in the morning. Do you have to air everyone’s story?  Can you edit out whiny comments?
