The Managing Director oversees the Interview Collection Department, which has been created to improve and align operations, training, and practice in interview facilitation and community engagement across StoryCorps’ regional and traveling Booth-based programs (StoryBooths and MobileBooth) and National recording team.

The 3 key teams of the Interview Collection Department include:

  • StoryBooths: currently consists of three (3) local StoryBooth programs, in San Francisco, Atlanta and Chicago
  • MobileBooth: which travels to ten (10) locations annually, partnering with local radio stations and community organizations for 4-6 week recording engagements
  • National: working with outreach partners and fee-for-service clients to execute custom, on-site recording days

StoryCorps’ mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world. Since 2003, over 100,000 participants have visited StoryCorps to record a 40-minute conversation with a loved one. To date, StoryCorps has collected over 60,000 stories from across the country, creating the largest oral history archive ever recorded.
