StoryCorps Custom Services


We offer unique experiences for organizations of all kinds. A StoryCorps event can bring people together for meaningful conversation, and create an audio time capsule for your community.

Our trained staff can record stories anywhere in the United States, with our portable recording equipment and a quiet room provided by the host organization. Up to 6 interviews per day can be recorded using the StoryCorps model: 40 minutes of uninterrupted conversation between two people who know each other well—friends, colleagues, or loved ones. The interviews are added to StoryCorps’ collection in the Library of Congress, and a digital archive is given to the host organization.

Fee: $3,500 – $6,000 per recording day.

Your event can be enhanced with a workshop or presentation, professional editing of your interviews, or use of the iconic StoryCorps MobileBooth.
