StoryCorps founder Dave Isay shares his new book, Mom: A Celebration of Mothers from StoryCorps.
Good question about Joshua’s accent.
Joshua lived in Dorset, England until the age of 6. Though he now lives in Connecticut, he has not lost his British accent, something that his mother attributes to Asperger’s. It goes along with all of the other difficulties people like Joshua have adapting to new people and social situations.
Ellen - Thanks the positive comments. It was a wonderful experience to be entrusted with this intimate conversation. We are currently working on seven new StoryCorps films which will air on PBS and subsequently be released via the web. Hopefully you enjoy watching them as much as we do making them.
Wondering why the boy has a British accent but mother does not.
This video is wonderful. Thank you. I cried when I heard this on the radio some time ago and the video is a beautiful representation of it.
