A few years ago, Boise State Public Radio helped StoryCorps launch a project with help from you to make Thanksgiving a holiday for listening. To date, more than 200,000 Americans have participated across all 50 states.
This Thanksgiving we're at it again! Take part in honoring an entire generation over a single holiday weekend. We're asking people across Idaho to record an interview with an elder using the StoryCorps app. We hope you can join us in the Great Thanksgiving Listen.
It's the connections they'll remember more than the centerpiece or stuffing. Download and print the official 2018 Great Thanksgiving Listen placemat, in whatever quantity you need, and you'll have a sampler platter of great questions at hand—closer than the salt shaker! Use them as ice-breakers around the table, then after the meal find a quiet place and record your interview with the app.
