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.

Wonderful People Stories
I think this app is really cool. I think it lets you listen to that humanity that other people don't get to hear because it is inside. One thing that I think would be really good for the developer is to make the app not the device to sleep while it was playing a story. For instance on the NPR app when you're listening to something your phone does not suspend.
Finally got MP3
Finally figured out how to extract an MP3. Upload to website then download MP3. I tried other things but none worked.
Option to copy & share
There is no option to upload to Facebook or copy & share with family only. I do not want to publish personal interviews. Please add more options for sharing interview.
