Have you ever thought about starting a new holiday tradition for the day after Thanksgiving?  I’m pleased to share with you information about the third annual National Day of Listening which takes place on Friday, November 26, 2010. On the day after Thanksgiving,  StoryCorps asks that all Americans set aside an hour to interview a friend, a loved one, or someone in their community about his or her life.

I will be taking part in the 2010 National Day of Listening by recording interviews with my own family and friends.

To record your own National Day of Listening interview:

  1. Find someone you’d like to interview
  2. Create your question list
  3. Sit down to record your conversation

StoryCorps has created a free Do-It-Yourself (DIY) interview guide with step-by-step interview instructions, equipment recommendations, and sample questions that is available online at www.nationaldayoflistening.org. You can record your interview using equipment that is readily available in most homes—from cell phones to tape recorders to computers or even pen and paper.

 The National Day of Listening was started by StoryCorps in 2008 as a way to provide an alternative to “Black Friday” shopping sprees. By participating in this year’s National Day of Listening, I hope you’ll find that taking the time out to interview someone about his or her life is the least expensive but most meaningful gift that we can give.

StoryCorps’ mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, preserve, and share their stories. Each week, millions of Americans listen to StoryCorps’ award-winning broadcasts on NPR’s Morning Edition.
