LearnOutLoud.com Review

The StoryCorps Podcast features Americans across the country telling their own stories as they are interviewed by family and friends. The StoryCorps organization was established in the hopes of creating an oral history through the tens of thousands of interviews that are conducted in their StoryBooths everyday. The stories are typically only 2-3 minutes in length so they're a great way to learn about the variety of American life in a short period of time.
