Let’s Get This Started.
A warm welcome to the new StoryCorps blog, a space for getting to know the ins and the outs of our organization. Maybe you’ve heard our broadcasts every Friday or maybe you’ve seen one of our animated shorts a time or two. Maybe you’ve even shared your story with us and lent your voice to our national archive at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. However you found your way here, we, the StoryCorps team, are glad that you did.
Since launching in 2003, we have discovered a countless number of amazing tales from across the country. We have shared these stories, not to make headlines, but to make human connections. After a decade of giving everyday people a voice, we realized we were building our own pretty interesting collection of experiences. So with that in mind, we thought it was about time we shared with you one more story – our own.
At the StoryCorps blog, that is exactly what you can expect to find: the story behind the stories. Here, you will find behind-the-scenes work, special interviews with our staff, extra insight into all the broadcasts you have laughed and cried with (okay, mainly cried), and all the latest happenings brought to you straight from our headquarters here in Brooklyn, NY. So jump in, join in the conversation, and tell us what you want to know about us! This blog is the nitty gritty of our mission in the best way possible, and we cannot wait to share it with you.
