StoryCorps

Airs Fridays at 6:25 a.m and 8:25 a.m.

StoryCorps is America's oral history project. Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected more than 60,000 interviews with over 100,000 participants from all backgrounds -- the largest single collection of human voices ever gathered.

Recordings are archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress so that future generations can hear the stories – and the voices – of today. We share stories online and through our popular weekly NPR broadcasts, podcast, animated shorts and best-selling books. StoryCorps is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
