In 2003, radio producer Dave Isay founded StoryCorps to capture the American voice. He wanted to give all Americans the chance to preserve and share their stories with others. Since its inceptions, two trailers have traveled all across the country listening, and gathering stories from people. So far the team has collected over 45,000 stories.  Dave Isay shares some of these stories in his new book, "The Ties that Bind: Stories of Love, and Gratitude from the First Ten Years." Our Airtalk host, Larry Mantle shared in a conversation with David about the power of the human bond and the connection in these stories.
