November 23, 2012 marks the fifth anniversary of StoryCorps' National Day of Listening. On the day after Thanksgiving, take a few minutes to interview a loved one about their life. StoryCorps is partnering with SoundCloud to debut the interactive Wall of Listening. Invite your listeners to record interviews with family or friends, and upload the audio and a picture to the Wall of Listening.
This year, StoryCorps is honoring veterans, active duty military service members, and their families. The best conversations can start with simple questions. How do you want to be remembered? What was the happiest moment of your life? Learn more at nationaldayoflistening.org.
