StoryCorps, in partnership with SoundCloud, provides everyone the ability to record their story and upload it with a picture for The National Day of Listening . You can record in your web browser, or record using equipment readily available to you, such as an iPhone, digital recorder, or laptop.

witf TV will broadcast the animated special Listening Is an Act of Love on Thanksgiving evening, November 28 at 8:00pm. It features six stories drawn from thousands of interviews preserved in the StoryCorps archive. These intimate, heartfelt conversations demonstrate the power of truly listening to one another.
