StoryCorps Moves from Radio to Television

posted by Nell Minow

I love StoryCorps, the wonderful NPR series and podcast that lets Americans tell their own funny, touching, inspiring, tragic, stories of love, work, family, war, school, struggle, heartbreak, and triumph. There are stories about world-changing historic events and stories about life-changing moments that matter only to the people involved. A boy with Asperger syndrome asks his mother what it is like to be a parent. A Brooklyn couple talk about falling in love, staying together, and living through the final stages of cancer as they prepare to say goodbye. A man adjusts to life with a bionic hand. A man recalls the Stonewall uprising that began the movement for gay rights. A woman talks to her adult son about her decision to adopt him.
Now it is a television series, the honest, intimate voices accompanied by beautifully designed animation. Please gather your family and watch. I hope it will inspire you to share your own stories with each other or maybe with StoryCorps, too.
