The StoryCorps App asks permission to access your phone's microphone so that it can record your StoryCorps interview.
The app also seeks permission to access your camera because you'll be given the option to take a photo with your interview partner after you finish recording. You'll also be given the option to upload a photo from your library or to skip the step altogether (you can add a photo to your interview at any time). Participant photos are considered to be an important part of the StoryCorps Archive.
