StoryCorps now has a Rent-A-Storykit

Boys and Girls, do try this at home!! Storycorps has a Rent a StoryKit. Minidisc recorder, two discs, microphone, headphone and users guide. $100/week. Requires $500 deposit.

This is pretty smart. They have the equipment, send it to you, tell you how to do the conversation, you do it, send it back, and they create the Audio CD and send that to you, and a copy goes to the American Folklife collection at the Library of Congress.

Why is it smart? All the benefit of the studio in the trailer experience, and you don’t have to go shopping for equipment and puzzling over the options. Also good if StoryCorps hasn’t come to town, or if StoryCorps came to town right after the holidays and by the time you found out about it, It Was Too Late.
