If you want me to tear up, just get me to listen to NPR’s StoryCorps in the morning. The story of an actor coping with and learning to appreciate his stutter, a woman in Utah helping a POW from World War II, and a story on friendship. Housed at the Library of Congress, this project seems to be a merger of A Prairie Home Companion, Studs Terkel, and Raymond Chandler stories. Subscribe to their podcast via iTunes or listen online and be sure to have a tissue box to help you with the beauty.
You can even make your own entry to submit!
