I've interviewed hundreds, if not thousands, of people in my journalism career, and my most memorable one was during StoryCorps' visit here in 2008.

I interviewed my dad.

Founded in 2003, the nonprofit organization StoryCorps has given more than 100,000 Americans the chance to record interviews about their lives, pass wisdom from one generation to the next, and leave a legacy for the future. It is the largest single collection of human voices ever gathered.

StoryCorps is bringing its Airstream recording studio to Cincinnati in April. The non-profit oral history project is partnering with Cincinnati Public Radio.

Last year, more than 100,000 individuals from all 50 states took part in StoryCorps' national education project that empowers high school students to record conversations with a grandparent or another elder over a single holiday weekend. Working with teachers and students, they preserved tens of thousands of priceless intergenerational stories, and at a time when so many feel their voices aren’t - or weren’t - being heard, the project provides a national platform for listening and empathy.
