Boston Marathon Reflections: ‘I Walked Right Into The Second Bomb’

This page features selections from the WBUR Oral History Project, a growing collection of voices of over 40 survivors, first responders and others reflecting on the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and its aftermath, created in collaboration with Northeastern University’s “Our Marathon: Boston Bombing Digital Archive.” Interviews for this project were conducted by Jayne Guberman and Joanna Shea O’Brien. The audio clips below were produced by Kelly Horan, with help from George Hicks. Visit the “Our Marathon” website to explore additional interviews, photos and to share your own experience.
