Black Friday is Listening Day

National Day of Listening. Instead of (or in addition to) shopping, listen to your family. This is a StoryCorps effort.

Spend an hour recording a conversation with someone around you at Thanksgiving time. There’s a 2-page recording guide that covers the basics. They also encourage you to listen to some of the recordings for inspiration, and then share your experiences with them once you’ve done so.

BTW, in case you were wondering what Black Friday is… it’s the shopping day post Thanksgiving.

If you missed your chance to record those stories over Thanksgiving, there’s still time over the Winter Holidays.  If you’re looking for more help, come to the “Capturing Sensational Stories” Workshop in Washington, DC on Wednesday, Dec. 10th for a hands-on workshop that will teach everything from how to compose interview questions to making your video camera work for you.  Led by a three-time Emmy award-winning producer.  Register at by 12/7/08.
