Does Ron Know His Stories?

RAS Blog Post Banner

Rons PictureI received this email from Ora Parker, who lives in Honolulu. 

Hey Ron, these are strange times. I wanted to thank you for your podcast and ask a question. You play so many different types of stories and seem to know a lot about what you are presenting. How and why is that?  I get it if you don’t want to answer, but please do! – Ora.

First, let me say that I am an old guy. Being around awhile exposes you to a lot of stuff. Secondly, the first time I went to college I was an English major.  I took a lot of literature classes and in fact, loved every one of them. Later in life, I would audit writing and lit class just for fun. Yes, that makes me a nerd. I work as an editor now after years of working as an engineer. Both of these fields required me to do a lot of research. Think fact-checking, plagiarism checks, and general knowledge. Research is probably one of my favorite things to do. Every story that you hear on Ron’s Amazing Stories including those submitted by you guys I research as much as I can.  For example; I look at the town the person is from, look at the places they mention in their story, and verify as many facts as I can. I do this in the name of the podcast, but if the truth be told I love it all. Why? Because I am a nerd.

I think this answers how and why I know about the stories. But there is one more thing to add. I love reading and telling stories to people. I may not be an expert in everything I share, but I do that best I can to make sure I get it right.  Thank you for your question Ora.

Best Regards,
