Listen Back to StoryCorps in NH

Interviews at the StoryCorps Mobile Booth begin with a question, but the exciting part is the answer. Because, whether it’s from someone we know and love, or from someone we’ve just met, the answer tells us something we didn’t know.

StoryCorps is celebrating 10 years of recording the stories of average Americans. We thought it would be a good time to listen back to some of the stories we recorded when the StoryCorps Mobile Booth came to Concord in 2007, and Berlin in 2009.
