StoryCorps.me and the free StoryCorps app form “a global platform for listening, connecting, and sharing stories of the human experience” (“About StoryCorps.me,” 2015). StoryCorps.me is based on the StoryCorps project (http://www.storycorps.org) that has travelled throughout America since 2003 to record, preserve and broadcast the stories of its citizens. StoryCorps.me brings this concept out of recording studios and into the hands of anyone with access to a mobile device.
Both StoryCorps.me and the StoryCorps app were released in beta mode in March 2015 with funding from the 2015 TED Prize and the 2014 Knight Prototype Fund (http://www.storycorps.me/).
