It’s a road trip that has been going on for more than 10 years.
In 2005, StoryCorps converted an Airstream trailer into a traveling recording studio–our MobileBooth–and launched its first cross-country tour. Each year, we visit cities and towns across the country to record the stories of the people who live there. We partner with local public radio stations, cultural institutions and community-based organizations to get the word out and invite participants to bring someone to the StoryCorps MobileBooth.

Become a Community Partner
Our goal is to make the StoryCorps recording experience accessible to all. One way we do that is by partnering with local organizations that serve diverse populations. StoryCorps interviews celebrate the voices and milestones in your community and encourage meaningful interactions between your organization and the people you serve. Community partnerships are free of charge, and conversations can be recorded in any language.
