Record the Conversation of a Lifetime

Since 2003, StoryCorps has built the largest collection of human voices ever archived — and we want to add yours. Our mission is to build connections, encourage compassion between people, and share stories, big and small. Have an incredible story to tell? Want to have a meaningful talk with someone important in your life? We’d love for you to join in and preserve your voice for future generations. It’s simple to get started!

You and your partner can record a conversation either using StoryCorps’ self directed recording tools or at one of the StoryCorps recording sites.

StoryCorps and Underrepresented Voices

StoryCorps is committed to recording, preserving and amplifying the voices of underrepresented groups. We strive to share stories from people with different backgrounds and experiences. Explore stories from our collections and add your voice to one of our special recording projects.

For Individuals

StoryCorps’ Mobile Tour travels across the country, partnering with local organizations to record and preserve the stories of communities. Book an appointment to record either in-person or virtually on one of our upcoming Mobile Tour stops.

Since 2013, StoryCorps’ Atlanta Booth located at the Atlanta History Center has recorded and preserved thousands of conversations. Are you in Atlanta? Invite a loved one and book an appointment to record either in-person or through Atlanta’s virtual recording booth.

Our Military Voices Initiative provides a platform to veterans, service members, and military families across the U.S. to honor and listen to their stories. Book an appointment to record in-person or virtually on one of our upcoming Military Voices Initiative stops.
Record with others in the same room using the StoryCorps App, and preserve your conversation with help from our DIY resources. Or record with loved ones across the street or across the country from your web browser with StoryCorps Connect.
