Dave Isay's Story Corps Project

StoryCorps, created by Dave Isay. In the Grand Central Terminal sits a spaceship-like booth. Enter the booth, pay $10, and you get to interview anyone you want. Isay and his team facilitate your interview, give you a copy and file another with the Library of Congress. Isay's WPA-inspired project strives to "document the lives of ordinary people."

Check out the newest sampler of people's lifestories:

Story Corps Sampler

Part of the Third Coast International Audio Festival and hosted by Chicago Public Radio station: WBEZ

When you are done listening to these stories get off your ass and record the stories of families and friends and make your own sampler!
