Welcome to the York Story Slam podcast, where we feature select stories from our monthly open mic storytelling events in York, Pennsylvania.
On June 20, ten storytellers shared their stories with our audience at Holy Hound Taproom in downtown York.
Our theme for the evening was Square Peg. We heard stories about feeling out of place, searching and ultimately finding one's tribe, and sticking out for all the wrong reasons.
Mary Lee won with her story about a club she longed to join in elementary school.
Next up is Sarah Chain. Sarah also shared a story from her school days. She told us about how she got the nickname that stuck.
Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from Christina Powers, who shared the story of a trip to Honduras, where she worked as a quasi-fluent interpreter for a medical mission.
All the winners from this year’s open mic story slam events will return to compete for the title of Best Storyteller in York. Tickets for our events are available on our website. While you're there, you can sign up for our monthly newsletter. Please follow us on Twitter, Facebook and watch our videos on our YouTube channel.
Our podcast is produced with support from The Beer Ace. This episode comes to you with support from this month’s featured brewery partner, Yard’s Brewing Company.
