 This Friday, the national oral history project StoryCorps is holding its annual National Day of Listening. On this day, the organization encourages ordinary people to interview their loved ones much as they would on a visit to a StoryCorps booth.

To find out more about the Day of Listening, and to get an idea of what happens in a StoryCorps interview, WABE’s Kate Sweeney paid a visit to Atlanta’s StoryCorps booth, to talk with a pair as they visited to record their own interview.
