StoryCorps Gets to the Core of American Families
The formula is simple: two people who care about each other, asking honest and sometimes difficult questions–with a microphone in front of them to record their responses for posterity.
StoryCorps began recording and archiving stories of the American experience in 2003. The group has collected more than 30,000 interviews from more than 60,000 participants, preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
The interviews probe deeply into the questions that matter in an honest exploration of intimacy, identity, and what it means to live in relationship with one another.
