StoryCorps



For those of you who have not yet heard of the remarkable StoryCorps project, this sample will provide a glimpse into the wonderful revelations that result when you sit two people down across the table from one another and ask them to share their memories. The project began in a small sound booth in New York's Grand Central Station.

StoryCorps founder Dave Isay has collected some of his favorite stories into a new book entitled Listening Is an Act of Love: A Celebration of American Life from the StoryCorps Project.

There are a handful of recordings on YouTube (press "menu" button on above screen), but visit the StoryCorps website for many more samples, including several "highlights" collections.
