Everyday Voices

David Isay and Alex Kotlowitz both try to discover extraordinary stories in "ordinary people."

David Isay and Alex Kotlowitz both try to discover extraordinary stories in "ordinary people."

Over the course of their careers they have documented the lives of people who are outsiders, either because of where they live -- be it in public housing, flop houses, or prison -- or who they are: political and social mavericks, new immigrants, ex-felons.

Listen in as they discuss why they've chosen to celebrate the uncelebrated, how they find and tell their stories, and the beauty and pitfalls of producing pieces without narration.
