Founded in 2003 by Dave Isay, StoryCorps has given more than 450,000 people — Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs, in towns and cities in all 50 states — the chance to record interviews about their lives.
The organization preserves the recordings in its archive at the Library of Congress, the largest single collection of human voices ever gathered, and shares select stories with the public through StoryCorps' weekly podcast, NPR broadcasts, animated shorts, digital platforms, and best-selling books.
These powerful human stories reflect the vast range of American experiences, wisdom and values; engender empathy and connection; and remind us how much more we have in common than divides us.
KOSU thanks Phillips Murrah, Oklahoma’s business law firm, for sponsoring the StoryCorps mobile recording booth in Oklahoma City this February and March. Phillips Murrah: the Power of a Strategic Partner. More information at phillipsmurrah.com.
