StoryCorps Animated Shorts DVD
StoryCorps Animated Shorts are brought to the screen with the classic animation style of the Rauch Brothers. Pulled from more than 40,000 audio interviews recorded by StoryCorps and archived in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, each story captures the poetry, grace, and wisdom found all around us if we take the time to listen.
