The series will offer 20 highly produced, compelling stories from 9/11, posted each week starting Sept. 2.

“September 11, 2001 is etched in our memories as a day of incalculable tragedy, but also superhuman courage,” said ’20 for 20’ host Niels Jorgensen. “With ’20 for 20’ we will be bringing forward stories that explain what happened that day through the eyes of survivors and their families, through the families of those who died, through first responders, and many others directly affected by the events of that day. Each story is incredible and unique. These stories will cause listeners to more fully understand the events, what it felt like being there, what choices were made and why, and how their lives changed. We should never forget 9/11. Our hope is that the ’20 for 20’ podcast series will offer a living testimony for future generations.”
