After a StoryCorps interview, participants receive a designer CD copy of their conversation. In addition, most participants agree to have the interview archived at the Library of Congress’ American Folklife Center. Some interviews are also excerpted for National Public Radio broadcast or for our website. On the Mobile Booth Tour, our local station partners get to extract their own clips from StoryCorps interviews.
Here in Atlanta, NPR affiliate WABE is our partner. In the picture above, the station’s Content Producer, Dave Barasoain admires a StoryCorps CD facilitator Jonah Engle has just handed him. During StoryCorps’ visit to Atlanta, public radio listeners in the area are treated to more than the weekly StoryCorps clips aired on NPR’s Morning Edition: Indeed, WABE listeners get an earful of poignant stories told by fellow Georgians!
