Take the survey and become a participant

StoryCorps: One Small Step, a national storytelling project designed to break down boundaries created by politics and remember our shared humanity. The project seeks to remind us that we have more in common than that which divides us, and that treating those with whom we may disagree with decency and respect is essential to a functioning democracy.

AZPM is partnering with StoryCorps to record conversations between strangers who hold different political beliefs. The point of the conversations is NOT to debate policy or simply “talk politics.” The goal is for participants to share personal stories about how they arrived at their specific beliefs in order to create understanding, rather than trying to sway or convert.

With the participants' permission, each conversation will be preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, and some will be broadcast on upcoming episodes of Arizona Spotlight on NPR 89.1 FM.

AZPM is accepting applications to participate in this unique project. If you are interested in taking "one small step" with us and recording a conversation with someone who holds different political beliefs than your own, please take a few moments to fill out this brief survey.
