StoryCorps COLUMBUS | WOSU Radio


Thursdays on All Things Considered and Saturdays on Weekend Edition

StoryCorps COLUMBUS brings you interviews from Central Ohioans discussing some of the most important moments of their lives.

StoryCorps’ mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world. In the summer of 2019, StoryCorps partnered with WOSU Public Media to record dozens of stories in Columbus.

Now, StoryCorps COLUMBUS delivers a collection of those stories through a podcast and 89.7 NPR News.

Katie Byrnes was born deaf, but this didn’t stop her from finding ways to relate to others.

Her parents, Jayne and John Byrnes remember Katie’s earliest signs of communicating, her intelligence and love of music. Even though Katie passed at the young age of five-years-old, she had an incredible impact on the deaf community.


StoryCorps COLUMBUS is the new podcast and radio series from WOSU Public Media.
