Listening is an Act of Love

Client: Storycorps

Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 45,000 interviews with nearly 90,000 everyday Americans.  StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind, and millions listen to their weekly broadcasts on NPR’s Morning Edition.

In 2004, as the StoryCorps mobile studio was stationed in Santa Monica, California, and StoryCorps’ founder David Isay was touring the nation promoting the publication of the new StoryCorps book Listening is an Act of Love, the organization asked us to produce a short video about the book and their work.  

The video has been featured on the “About Us” page of the StoryCorps website ever since.
