The Great Thanksgiving Listen

What Is The Great Thanksgiving Listen?

The Great Thanksgiving Listen encourages young people—and people of all ages—to create an oral history of our times by recording an interview with an elder, mentor, friend, or someone they admire.

With permission, interviews become part of the StoryCorps Archive at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. More than 650,000 people have participated in StoryCorps to date, making it the largest single collection of voices ever gathered.

Since 2015, thousands of people from all 50 states have participated in the Great Listen. Preserve your own unique oral history with a loved one and transform the holidays into a time of intergenerational sharing.
