Private audio recording service a modern take on documenting history

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

When North Canterbury's Jess Davidson started the Smile and Pod podcast a year ago, her aim was to inspire regular folk with stories from successful New Zealanders.

She began reminiscing about her grandfather, the stories he would tell her as a child, and more importantly how he would tell them – his humour and his turns of phrase.

After leaving her job in December, the former television and radio host started In My Own Words, a private recording service for people to leave their story for others to hear.

It could be recording a eulogy, a best man's speech, or a grandparent reading books to overseas grandchildren, and is especially pertinent in today’s Covid-19 travel-restricted world.
