Can’t find a StoryCorps recording booth near you? Check out our free Do-It-Yourself Guide! Tens of thousands of people have used the StoryCorps DIY Guide to record a story with their loved ones, while educators and community organizations have incorporated StoryCorps’ interviewing techniques and resources into their programs.
You can use recording equipment that is readily available to you, such as a computer or smart phone. Once your recording is complete, post it to our interactive Wall of Listening. Then share it on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.
1. Listen to stories.
2. Record a story.
3. Ask your friends, family, neighbors and community to participate.
Sit down with your friends and family over the holidays and ask the questions you’ve always wanted to ask. Organize a neighborhood or community recording party. A StoryCorps DIY interview is a great way to learn more about one another and honor the people you care about–or maybe someone you don’t know at all.
4. Get your organization / company involved.
