StoryCorps is an independent nonprofit whose mission is to provide people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives.
Since 2003, tens of thousands of everyday people have shared stories and life experiences in a StoryCorps recording session. Each conversation is sent to the participants to share, and is preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind, and millions listen to our weekly broadcasts on NPR’s Morning Edition, local public radio stations and at storycorps.org.
