After Katherine mentioned StoryCorps in my critique a couple weeks ago, I kept forgetting to put it on my blog to record my thoughts about it! Here it is:
What I value about StoryCorps is their mission to preserve personal stories. Another key aspect is the ability to record and share these stories with other people. It is both support system and a learning tool. A learning tool for strangers who listen to other stories and even for the people involved in telling the story.
