In this essay, we hear from Dave Isay, the founder of StoryCorps, “the largest single collection of human voices ever gathered.” Dave writes of an insight that struck him in his earlier life as a more traditional radio documentary producer: that the interview itself, and the impact of the experience on the person being interviewed (as opposed to the audience), could be the purpose of the work. Dave issues a call and an invitation to us all: Record the voices of the ones you love. Now. “Everyone around You Has a Story the World Needs to Hear” is adapted from Dave Isay’s TED Talk at the 2015 TED Conference. Reprinted with permission of TED Conferences LLC.
