This US Thanksgiving weekend tens of thousands of recordings of oral histories of people's loved ones will be made across the US. That's the aim of StoryCorps and their Great Thanksgiving Listen.

The idea is to have kids interview the older generation using the app, a smartphone app that anyone with an Android and iOS device could download and use to record high-quality audio. There are prompt questions the kids can ask to get the interview rolling.

StoryCorps’ founder Dave Isay was the winner of the 2015 TED conference $1 million prize to someone with “a creative, bold vision to spark global change.”
