Pick of the Week: StoryCorps

StoryCorps, a project to inspire people to conduct and preserve meaningful interviews, is calling for a “national day of listening” on Nov. 26.

The idea: “On the day after Thanksgiving, set aside one hour to record a conversation with someone important to you. You can interview anyone you choose: an older relative, a friend, a teacher, or someone from the neighborhood. You can preserve the interview using recording equipment readily available in most homes, such as cell phones, tape recorders, computers, or even pen and paper. Our free Do-It-Yourself Instruction Guide is easy to use and will prepare you and your interview partner to record a memorable conversation, no matter which recording method you choose.”

If you like you can share your interview with StoryCorps. StoryCorps interviews are archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress in Washington D.C.
