In Our Own Words.

Posted on Monday, October 28th, 2013.


Oral history has never looked so good.

Last week was StoryCorps’ 10th Anniversary and we were touched at the amazing show of support. It goes without saying (but we’ll say it anyways), StoryCorps would not be the organization it is today without all of you.

When you work at a place like StoryCorps, you get used to being part of a very different kind of community. You can no longer just hop on the subway home without wondering about everyone else on the train and their stories. Where are they going? What makes their lives go? Our ears are forever perked to hear something unforgettable from an everyday encounter, and while perhaps our loved ones wish we didn’t ask so many follow up questions about their recent trip to the grocery store, we would not have it any other way.

Until now, we haven’t had the opportunity to really express how we feel about StoryCorps. The 10th Anniversary seemed like a good time to start, right? So, the staff came together to share exactly what StoryCorps means to us.

Without further adieu we give you: “StoryCorps: In Our Own Words.” Big thanks to StoryCorps Producer, Yasmina Guerda, and Facilitators Daniel Sitts and Cristina Kim, for producing this lovely piece!
