About Story Made


On our podcast, we interview librarians, independent bookshop owners, authors, filmmakers, songwriters, professors, and more to learn more about the influence of stories on individuals, our culture, our politics, and our memory. Simply put, we want to know one thing: what difference can a story make?


Our wandering recording station — with an audio recorder and journal — visits communities across the country and invites community members to give testimonies about stories. We’ll be hosted by libraries, indie bookshops, museums, and other places dedicated to celebrating and preserving stories.


We all have stories to tell. We want to hear them and share the with the world. So use your voice — something you share could change someone’s life. It might even save it.
