Yesterday’s edition of the daily news program – Democracy Now, hosted by Amy “National Treasure” Goodman – featured an entire hour devoted to StoryCorps, an American oral history project featuring regular people telling each other their regular stories. StoryCorps’ founder, radio producer David Isay, started the project in mid 2003.
StoryCorps employs a private booth equipped with recording equipment and two chairs. Pairs of friends, relations, strangers are invited to enter the booth for 40 minutes for any variety of Q&A they wish. At the end of the recording session, two CD’s are created. One goes to the participants. The other goes to the Library Of Congress.
