Stories of Our City

"Real stories from real people around the world," make up the foundation of Stories of Our City. The resource is on a mission to collect and share these stories "in an effort to cultivate community and global understanding." The narratives featured on the site are encapsulated in short podcast-styled episodes (usually around 10 minutes in length). Readers can find the episodes on Apple Podcasts, or via the link above. Following the link, readers will want to check out the Stories page, which catalogs tales using an interactive map pinpointing where each story is from. Clicking on a location leads users to the associated narrative, each including an image and the audio recording of the story. The narratives span the globe — from San Antonio, Texas to Suakoko, Liberia —- and invite listeners to virtually step into a stranger's shoes. Whether it is learning about the "magic of music," or "unconventional love stories," the tales collected on Stories of Our City demonstrate our global "common humanity." Finally, the site features a Highlighted Story that stands out to the storytellers that curate the resource.
