Every fall the holidays seem to come around more quickly. You blink on Labor Day and suddenly you see Halloween decorations and pumpkin spice lattes. So, if you’re already thinking in fall holiday mode, you need to know about this: StoryCorps, the audio project which records and archives the spoken stories of Americans from all walks of life, has announced that it is once again hosting The Great Thanksgiving Listen. Begun in 2015 as a project to encourage intergenerational dialogue, the goal is to assist high school students in interviewing older members of their family or community, using a StoryCorps app, which is free to download. Already over 250,000 general interviews have been recorded through the StoryCorps recording booths around the country and through their smart phone app. These conversations have been archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. Anyone who listens to Morning Edition on NPR has probably heard some of these poignant conversations, often revealing previously undisclosed life stories from seniors to younger generations. So this Thanksgiving, instead of fighting over the current political climate, encourage younger family members to learn the wisdom of their elders and record these conversations for posterity through StoryCorps.
