About Us

Our team has extensive experience crafting stories for public broadcasting through radio and podcasts. Today, we use our expertise to help tell family stories that preserve legacies. Each production is customized to create an engaging audio documentary that can be shared with family and friends for generations to come.
How does it work?
  • We begin with an initial consultation in order to fully understand your goals and desires. Who’s the subject of your story? Do you have questions or topics that are especially important to address? Is there anything specific you would like us to include?

  • Our team then conducts initial research and starts to formulate the structure of your story. This step enables us to ask the right questions and understand the most important aspects of the narrative.

  • Next we coordinate substantial interviews that will lay the foundation for your story. Our professional interviewers specialize in asking the right questions and ensuring that you and your family feel comfortable along the way.

  • The rest is up to us. We dedicate significant time to further research, write, and edit the production to best fit your family’s story. We take pride in creating an end product that will be valuable to you, your loved ones, and future generations.

Family Sounds is brought to you by a well-established audio production & broadcast company. We are best known as the creators of the popular podcasts “Curious Minds” and “Malicious Life”
