Inspired! Put a booth somewhere central and invite people to record a moment from their lives. How easy is that! And how honest! Each little vignette is a glimpse into real life, not with the guilty surrealism of a reality series, but in a manner that is so pared down to the human level that absolutely everyone can relate.
It's true that genius sits in a corner, and StoryCorps proves it. Each piece is only around a minute. Do your listeners a favor and find a place to squeeze it into your schedule.
