How We Starchive
Megan Knutson, Starchive VP, Mom, Music Manager
Like all moms, I have a million things going on at once. From incredible work projects, to capturing amazing family memories (my baby crawling for the first time, my daughter registering for kindergarten, my husband slaying a guitar solo — ah, life is good!), to managing household paperwork (finances, health care, registration forms…you know, the less fun stuff), to passionately engaging in volunteer projects — I’ve got a lot of media to keep track of.
Starchive gives me one easy place to collect, access, and share all the digital stuff that I care about. Recently, while on the go, I had to find and deliver my kids’ most recent vaccination records and the clock was ticking. While in the past this would’ve required a trip to the file-cabinet-of-doom (ok, a little dramatic but seriously, physical files still?) and an attempt at remembering how I would’ve filed those records, Starchive made this ridiculously simple with a quick search and share. What would’ve taken me 15-30 minutes took me 3 minutes. Saving time? Easy to use solutions? Yes, please.

Dubbed “the voice of the working man,” Studs Terkel reached international acclaim as one of the most intellectually curious newscasters of the 20th century. His work included coverage of the civil rights movement and conversations with the power players of jazz, blues, and politics.
