If there's one tradition that's never faded away in our history as people on this earth, it's storytelling. StoryCorps is a massive oral history project whose mission is to record, preserve and share the stories of Americans from all background and beliefs. It was founded in 2003 by radio documentary producer Dave Isay. People tell their stories in mobile booths all around the country, and selected stories air nationally on NPR. Isay spoke at Seattle's Town Hall on February 7, 2012.
