Founded in 2003, the nonprofit organization StoryCorps, based in Brooklyn, New York has given 100,000 people the chance to record interviews about their lives, pass wisdom from one generation to the next, and leave a legacy for the future. It is the largest single collection of human voices ever gathered.
StoryCorps shares edited excerpts of these stories with the world through popular weekly NPR broadcasts, animated shorts, digital platforms, and best-selling books. These powerful conversations illustrate our shared humanity and show how much more we share in common than divides us.
StoryCorps interviews have traditionally been recorded in StoryCorps booths in the United States with the assistance of StoryCorps facilitators. With the introduction of this app, StoryCorps interviews can now be recorded anywhere, anytime and shared to our companion website at StoryCorps.me. For at least one year after launch, interviews shared to StoryCorps.me through the app will be archived at the American Folklife Center at the United States Library of Congress.
To learn more, visit StoryCorps.org and StoryCorps.me.

This version (2.3.0) has several new improvements, including:
- Ability to delete interviews on your device without deleting them on StoryCorps.me
- Better crash tracking to improve future versions
- Removed guest access so all users must have an account
- Improved onboarding age selector

Thanks so much for being a part of StoryCorps! More updates and improvements are on the way soon!

Our stories are everything!
StoryCorps reminds us of our own and others' humanity. I often cry as I listen to stories of struggle, triumph, transformation, heroics, family, inside jokes, and more! Sometimes a story has all of that! The weekly story on NPR and the stories on the podcasts (and as listened to by me on the StoryCorps app) have stayed with me. I work in an up and down world of School Counseling and also want to hear my students' and families' stories. This app makes me look outward and touches my heart. Stories by people who are older than me are especially instrumental and encouraging for living a full life! Well done!!
So glad I founds this
Storycorps is great. The stories are eye opening and inspirational.i listen to it everywhere I go and I always look forward to the next story. Keep them coming and I hope to one day add my own stories to this. Thank for this.
The best way to preserve history in audio
I listen faithfully to StoryCorps and gave a greater appreciation of life every time. The most recent campaign of #LiveMore is a great twist and I have hope that this venture will bring greater things to humanity than bickering over the trivialities of politics and race relations. Without question, and not just because I'm a podcaster myself, StoryCorps gets to the heart of real life by sitting people down, putting a microphone nearby, pressing record and letting history flow as it should.
