Stories from abroad

OK, so some of you might remember a project I posted about on here last semester. It was to be a biweekly, evening meeting in the Oldenborg dining hall where people would get up on stage and tell stories that happened while they were travelling outside of America. Contributions could take the form of a narrative monologue (a true short story) read by its author or by someone else, or of an interview if someone has a great story to tell but just doesn't think they can write it. Of course I'm also open to other ways of conveying a story.
Now I'm looking to start the program in four or five weeks, but I need a lot of help. I want to give have a microphone set up, which will be easy of course, but we might also have occasional use for sound effects, music, etc., that would be pumped over the speakers. I'd also like to record the monologues if possible. So anyone who knows how to do that can just give me a call (x76987) or e-mail (cmp02000@pomona.edu) or stop by my room (Oldenborg 155) or just respond to this. Any general logistical help would be good, too.
But mostly I'm looking for content. For one, I need someone to help find and edit it--preferably someone who knows a little about public speaking: how long it takes to read a given number of words, what a reasonable amount of stage-time is, and all that. For two, I'm looking for about a zillion people who can contribute actual stories or interviews or whatever. I'd like to have this be more of a regular than a sporadic thing, so I'd like to have a lot of content in advance of the first program. If you're at all interested in writing, or if you know someone who would be, or if you know someone you want to interview, or if you'd like to be interview yourself, please please please get in touch with me and I'll be your friend forever.
