My heart is full

As always, story corps digs to the depths of human experience. Thank you for all of your work. The crocodile tears coming out of my eyes from being so touched and inspired by the goodness in people, is wonderful.

Every Person Has A Story

I enjoy hearing core stories of peoples lives, especially people who are so different from myself. Storycorps true stories tell so much in a short segment. Often people’s stories tell about their perseverance to obtain their goals. A worthwhile listen.

Awesome but its not NPR

There is an important distinction. Story Corp is independent and separate from NPR. NPR simply runs some of their programming
