Storycorps is a not-for-profit organisation focused on recording, sharing and preserving the stories of lives of Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs. Storycorps has its beginnings in Sound Portraits Productions, founded in 1994 by MacArthur Fellow David Isay. Storycorps was founded in 2003 and has collected and archived more than 35,000 interviews from more than 70,000 participants. Each conversation is recorded on a free CD to share, and is preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
