For all of our recording locations, you can make a reservation online or over the phone. All the locations currently taking reservations will be listed on our Participate page, where you can make a reservation or add yourself to the waitlist. You can also make a reservation over the phone 24/7 in English or Spanish by calling 800.850.4406.
Chicago and Atlanta
At our StoryBooths in Atlanta and Chicago, new appointments are made available at 10:00 am on the first of each month for the following month. (For example, on January 1, you can begin to schedule February appointments.)
At the Chicago StoryBooth, recording appointments are available Thursdays from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
At the Atlanta StoryBooth, recording appointments are available Tuesdays from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm and Saturdays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Reservations for stops on our Mobile Tour often fill up very quickly. To provide opportunities for everyone to make an appointment, we release appointments for each stop on our mobile tour in two batches:
The first half of appointments become available two weeks prior to our arrival at 10:00 am local time.
The second half of our appointments for each stop become available the day after we begin recording, also at 10:00 am local time.
Keep track of our Mobile Tour schedule, and if we will be in your town, keep an ear out for more information on your local public radio station.
The StoryCorps App
If you're not near one of our recording locations, we recommend you use our app to record and share your story. The StoryCorps App (which you can download from the App Store, Kindle Store, or Google Play) and archive.storycorps.org are places where you can record, share, and catalog your story. You can record a conversation, and it will be preserved by the Library of Congress.
