After completing the matching questionnaire, the wait times to be matched with an interview partner for a One Small Step conversation can vary. Typically, waits are longer for those who do not reside in our One Small Step cities. The response we have received to One Small Step has been far more than we anticipated. Our team takes matching you with someone with differing views very seriously. Due to the volume and available partners, it may take some time before you hear from us about matching to have a conversation.
We know that many individuals have not yet been contacted to record an interview. Please know that we’re hard at work on a technology solution that will help us match participants faster and record more conversations. If you’re matched with a partner, our staff will reach out directly to schedule your recording.
If you are eager to record a One Small Step interview while waiting to be matched for a signature recording, we encourage you to facilitate a conversation on your own using the StoryCorps App or StoryCorps Connect. This is also an excellent option if you have someone in your life you’d like to record a One Small Step conversation with.
