StoryCorps, a national nonprofit focused on documenting the stories of everyday people in America, is coming to Seattle – and you could be recorded!

StoryCorps is bringing their MobileBooth, an Airstream trailer converted into a recording studio, to the New Holly Neighborhood Campus from August 6 to September 4 to record conversations between Seattle residents; a handful of these conversations will be aired on Seattle’s NPR outlet, KUOW. StoryCorps may also end up sharing snippets of the stories they record in Seattle on its weekly NPR broadcasts.

StoryCorps regularly broadcasts on NPR’s Morning Edition, as well as on a number of podcasts, but another of its missions is to record and archive conversations between people who volunteer to be recorded; these conversations are recorded on a CD and preserved at the Library of Congress’s American Folklife Center.

You can register for a slot to be recorded here or call StoryCorps’s reservation line at 800-850-4406.
