Happy National Day of Listening to one and all!

On Friday, November 28th, join us in celebrating the 7th Annual National Day of Listening (NDL). Get lost in conversation instead of Black Friday’s long shopping lines!

What is NDL? Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, The National Day of Listening offers a holiday alternative to Black Friday shopping sprees. It is an effort to encourage people of all backgrounds and beliefs to interview a friend, loved one, or member of their community about their lives.

It’s easy to participate! Check out our handy instruction guide below for all you “DIY-ers” out there and be sure to visit StoryCorps DIY for even MORE vital information. Happy Listening!
