About this campaign

On October 23, 2003 at New York City’s Grand Central Terminal alongside legendary oral historian Studs Terkel StoryCorps was introduced to the world. In that moment, the dream to give everyday people the chance to connect and recognize the value in their lives by recording interviews with one another became a reality. 

More than half a million Americans across all 50 states have added their voices to StoryCorps since that day fifteen years ago. 

StoryCorps’ belief is that storytelling holds a sacred place in society. When we truly take the time to listen to each other, connections are realized and empathy blossoms.

We are so proud of what we have accomplished in the last 15 years. 

We are so excited for the next 15 years of listening. Join us!
