StoryCorp Special On KET

The first-ever animated feature from StoryCorps celebrates the transformative power of listening.

“Listening Is An Act Of Love:  A StoryCorps Special” presents six stories from 10 years of the innovative oral history project, where everyday people sit down together to ask life's important questions.

Framing these intimate conversations from across the country is an interview between StoryCorps founder Dave Isay and his nine-year-old nephew, Benji, animated in the inimitable style of The Rauch Brothers.

Kentucky Educational Television will broadcast the program on KET2 on Tuesday, December 31 at 9:30 p.m.  (EST).

Since 2003, StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 50,000 interviews from more than 80,000 participants. Each conversation is recorded on a free CD to share, and is preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.

Weekly broadcasts of StoryCorps are available on NPR’s “Morning Edition,” heard Friday mornings on Morehead State Public Radio (WMKY at 90.3FM).
