One Small Step

One Small Step

Almost everyone who has recorded a StoryCorps interview has done so to thank and
honor a loved one. But, in this time of national divide and discord, we are trying something different.

We are asking people with different political viewpoints to record StoryCorps interviews with each other. We are doing this to help people get to know each other as human beings and remember our common humanity. We know that this will be extremely difficult: we also know that people always bring their best selves to StoryCorps, since they are aware that future generations will one day listen to their interview.

Help us take one small step toward one another.

StoryCorps will begin collecting interviews for One Small Step in January 2018.
