What families are saying...

There were moments in the interview that sparked her to pull from her memories that I don't think are written anywhere. Those memories are invaluable to me and my family! It was the questions that were asked that sparked that, and those are the parts that were so amazing to hear!

how we got here

If your family is anything like mine, you’ve probably had this same conversation...

“We need to get Grandma to write down her life story”

“Dad should really record his memories from growing up”


But here's the problem... most people have no clue where to start. And capturing someone's legacy can be an intimidating responsibility.

So we never get around to doing it.

That’s why we made Tales — to give families like yours an effortless way to capture your most important memories.

We connect your grandma, dad, or any loved one with a professional interviewer who will speak with them and record their stories.

Then we edit that interview down into a polished, NPR-quality podcast episode that your family will cherish forever.

You’ve already got 1,000 things to do — so let us handle this one for you.

I’d love for you to give Tales a try and experience the peace of mind of knowing you have your family's stories recorded forever.

Sincerely,

Spencer Wise
Co-founder of Tales.com
