Telling your story with StoryCorps

storycorps.gif
If you’re an NPR junkie, you are probably already familiar with StoryCorps – a group dedicated to capturing regular average Joe stories and memories through public-conducted interviews with friends and family. They make a professional recording, give participants a CD of their interview and archive the interview in the Library of Congress. Good stuff.

StoryCorps is setting up a temporary Houston story recording booth (in a funky old-skool trailer) in front of the Houston Museum of Natural Science from January 11th to February 3rd.

You have to make a reservation to get in, but frustratingly enough their online reservation calendar has shown up booked from the very minute it was available. If you’re interested, you might try calling their reservation line (800) 850-4406 for help or consider sponsoring a StoryBooth recording space for fellow Houstonians to share their stories.

    Or you could just do a podcast (or be on a friends podcast.) Your story would be archived at archive.org PLUS it is available for you, your friends or family etc, to download at any time.

    If you can’t get scheduled to tell your story to NPR, shoot me an email or call my call in line (281-394-4952) and I will put it out on a podcast for you.
