This article is for Signature interviews recorded in-person, but you can find more information about our virtual recording sessions here. To stay up-to-date on our safety guidelines and COVID-19 policies, read our Safe Community Agreements.
We're looking forward to welcoming you into our StoryBooth! We suggest you bring a bottle of water, and your list of questions. StoryCorps provides tissues in case you need them. Please note that we will ask you to turn your electronic devices completely off, and may suggest you remove watches or jewelry that make noise.
Due to safety considerations:
- Both participants must wear masks for the entirety of their appointment, if that area is in CODE RED, according to the CDC Covid Tracker
- Both participants must be physically present for the recording
- All non-household groups agree to maintain social distancing. Participants who choose not to distance, do so at their own risk. All StoryCorps staff will maintain a 6-foot distance from participants at all times.
- All non-household groups agree to maintain social distancing.
A StoryCorps facilitator will walk you through the entire process, and take care of the logistics, so you only need to think about sitting down with your loved one or friend. This isn’t a performance, and you’re not live on the radio, so there’s no need to rehearse; we do suggest thinking in advance about what you’d like to focus on during your interview. After all, you can’t get to everything in 40 minutes! For inspiration, take a look at our Great Questions.
