StoryCorps & Ad Council partner to start healing conversations

Techstination feature for Monday, March 15, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      StoryCorps has partnered with the Ad Council …using technology to bring people…strangers….who have diverging views…a little closer together.   The campaign is called Love Has No Labels…One Small Step.    And StoryCorps founder Dan Isay says people can sign up online…and get matched for a conversation with a stranger…

“First thing you do is…you have seen their bio.  You don’t know their last name, just their first name.  And you read your partner’s bio to them and they read your bio to you.  And then together you pick questions that you want to talk about.  It’s an amazing experience.   It takes courage to do it but actually being in the conversation is not difficult.    There are tried and true StoryCorps questions.”

For now…it is all online.  The Web site to learn more or take part…is www.lovehasnolabels/onesmallstep.
