This podcast is an audio recording of an interview with Dustin Curzon, one of the co-founders of Narrable. According to Dustin, “Narrable is for intergenerational stories that matter.” Dustin is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Together with Narrable co-founders in Phoenix, Arizona, and the development team in Bangalore, India, Narrable is growing into a platform which empowers people of all ages and generations to share their stories with photos using their phones and web browsers. Narrable is currently a browser-based digital storytelling service, and allows users to record audio with both computer microphones as well as phones (cell phones and land line phones.) Narrable works GREAT on the iPad now! In this interview, Dustin previews some upcoming Narrable features including an iOS app to be announced in March at SXSW in Austin, and “Group Narrables” to be announced later this spring. Next week on Tuesday, February 26, at 4 pm CST, Narrable will be hosting a “Teacher Roundtable” Google Hangout On-Air to discuss Narrable for the classroom and the features teachers would like to see in future versions of the platform. Check the podcast shownotes for links to resources referenced in this interview, including the upcoming Teacher Roundtable.
