The StoryCorps mobile app is an exciting new tool for recording and sharing meaningful conversations. We discuss ways the app can help social change organizations advance our work.
We give background on how the "Finding Our Way" storytelling project was conceived and executed, including details about the participant recruiting process and our “listening parties.” We also walk you through the new StoryCorps section of our website, explaining features of the public page’s edited stories, and offering a sneak peek at the raw story archive, which is still under construction but will soon be available for advocacy partners to access.
We’re in the second half of December -- that time when everyone is reflecting on the year. So we thought we’d take a few minutes to talk about some of the most interesting and moving online advocacy campaigns of 2014.

Today on the Spark Change Podcast, we talk about strategies for using different types of images, and free online tools for creating them.
