StoryCorps: The Opportunity to Record, Share, and Preserve the Stories of Our Lives
If you listen to NPR, you may be familiar with StoryCorps. Every week, recorded stories from people around the US are recorded and played on NPR. These stories always moved me to tears or to laughter and I always sat in my car wondering, “What is wrong with me?” It was like these stories were told to me directly and I could feel the emotions through the radio. I anticipated StoryCorps stories every week and hoped I’d catch them on my way to work or driving around town.
