For the last five weeks, Jacqueline Van Meter and the rest of the StoryCorps MobileBooth Tour team have been parked in a converted Airstream trailer outside New Belgium Brewing Company in Fort Collins.

“It is cozy,” Van Meter noted of their office. “That’s kind of the idea. Dim lighting, blankets -- just in case. The goal is really so that, despite what folks have been dealing with out in their day, in the parking lot, on the highway getting here -- once they step in here they can just kind of disconnect and focus on each other.”
