Inspired by NPR’s StoryCorps and to capture the spirit of Thanksgiving, the North Star News staff created several audio stories framed around this question: “What was a moment or event in your life that at the time seemed small, but ended up having a large impact or effect on you later in your life?” The staff sought people of different generations and crafted these pieces.

When life takes you to unexpected places, the only thing you can do is make the best of a situation. Penny moved into a new town at a young age, and met a group of girls that would send her life in a new direction. This chance meeting made her record skip tracks, playing a new and very different tune.
