Project Description

ADST.org has the world's largest collection of diplomatic oral histories, which are also archived at the Library of Congress. There are nearly 2000 interviews, each several hours long. We have digitized more than half the collection and now want to take interesting excerpts and make them podcasts, as we have done with these: http://adst.org/2013/04/podcasts/ We have accounts of evacuations, historic visits, assassinations, etc, so the possibilities are endless.
