WUWF Public Media is proud to welcome StoryCorps back to Pensacola, February 17-March 11, 2022.

StoryCorps’ mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world.

We do this to remind one another of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters. At the same time, we are creating an invaluable archive for future generations.

Public radio helps StoryCorps to capture and share these stories.


Sandra Averhart's interview with StoryCorps - Part I

Sandra Averhart's interview with StoryCorps - Part II

Make your reservation on February 3rd. You can choose in-person or virtual. In-person interviews will take place in the comfortable setting of The Spring, located on the 1st floor of The Studer Community Insititute, 220 West Garden Street.

Virtual interviews take place on the StoryCorps platform. A link is emailed to you and your conversation partner. One person needs to be in the gulf coast area, but the partner can be anywhere in the world (keep time zones in mind when booking reservation).

StoryCorps facilitators make it all happen!

Once you make your reservation, a StoryCorps team member will contact you to find out what you and your conversation partner would like to talk about, what you want to come away with and they will ask if you would like help with your questions.

You have 40 minutes.

While you can't fit a lifetime into 40 minutes, you choose your questions wisely and dive into those things that are most important.

What makes a good story/interview? Be open to where the conversation takes you. There is no wrong way to do this. It's up to you. It's your conversation.

Afterward, and only with your permission, your conversation is archived in the Library of Congress and available for broadcast.

A digital copy of your conversation/interview will be emailed to you.

Special thanks to The Spring Entrepreneur Hub at Studer Community Institute for partnering with WUWF to provide an ideal location for StoryCorps' in-person interviews.

StoryCorps is made possible in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a private corporation funded by the American people.
