The most important and compelling Katrina stories are those shared among survivors. Survivor interviewers train themselves to ask briefly and listen deeply in order to give the storyteller sovereignty over the story, and to present the story before the public in a way that reflects the teller faithfully. The listener also forms an active bond with the teller. To demonstrate the strength of that bond and to let the untold story of the interviewer surface, this chapter presents two duets: in each a survivor-interviewer introduces herself, talks about her experiences with the Surviving Katrina and Rita in Houston project, and then introduces one of the interviews that she has conducted.
