"Moira and John from the Sound Agents held a bespoke training for me and another colleague from the English Department at the University of Liverpool. I highly recommend such a training session as we were able to gain excellent insight into the oral history recording process while having plenty of freedom to ask questions. We were also offered hands-on practical attempts at recording and editing which was exceptionally helpful."

"Oral-history training with The Sound Agents was illuminating. They brought their many years of experience recording oral-histories with fascinating local communities to our bespoke training session, where we learnt about principles, practical techniques, and using equipment and software. With their help, I feel ready to begin my own oral-history project."
