Previously, we interviewed Andrew Overton on the Code Story podcast, about his startup – Saga. I wanted to give a shout out to the company, and tell you about their amazing product!
This holiday season, grow closer to your family even while apart with Saga, a voice-based app for families to save family memories that just launched earlier this year during COVID.
Saga is free and easy to use, even for your least tech-savvy relatives.
All you need to do is sign up and choose the people you want to invite to participate. We then send question prompts like “What’s the biggest trouble you got into as a kid?” to your relatives, who only need to dial a phone number.
Your family records their answers, and the recordings are saved and shared privately with just your group. It’s like getting a personal podcast of your family’s memories.
Saga is free to download on iOS, and has released a special edition holiday question pack in collaboration with AARP, for far-flung families during COVID to stay close and grow closer during the holidays. Saga is proud to have been featured in publications including USA Today, NBC and, Forbes.
“Chose to listen to my mom’s stories instead of Netflix. And wow. I’m learning so many things I never knew before. Thank you.”

During his career, Andrew Overton had the idea of saving his own family’s story somehow, but drug his feet on the idea. In 2019, he committed to making progress and validated the idea – in fact, it was at this point where he connected with his co-founder, Amelia Lin, and set off to create a robust product to capture stories from your loved ones – through an easy interface, all in one place, and saved in audio format. It’s like getting a personal podcast of your Grandma’s childhood stories. This is the creation story of Saga.
