Listening Is an Act of Love Premiers on PBS

This Thanksgiving special features animated vignettes reflecting how we can learn so much about the people all around us—even about the people we already know—just by taking the time to have a conversation.

You can find the most amazing stories from regular people, just by taking the time to have a conversation. What would happen if everyone just stopped and listened?

Listening Is an Act of Love, the first-ever animated special from StoryCorps, celebrates the power of listening.The special will premiere on PBS’ POV on November 28. (Check your local PBS listing.) You can watch the program for free online starting on November 29.

From the PBS website:

Framing these intimate conversations from across the country is an interview between Isay [the founder of StoryCorps] and his 9-year-old nephew, Benji. As always, the selections provoke both tears and laughter—and highlight the simple joy found in sitting together and asking life’s important questions.
