Welcome to the York Story Slam podcast, where we feature select stories from our monthly open mic storytelling events in York, Pennsylvania.
On August 18th , eight storytellers shared their stories with our audience. Our theme for the evening was BAD IDEA. We heard stories about defying death, encounters with law enforcement and wild animals, getting tattoos in questionable environments, and even one story about a guinea pig riding the family dog like a horse.
In the end, our winner was reigning Grand Slam champion, Mina Edmondson, who told us about the time she took her four children on a spaceship to the moon.
Mina earned a spot in our Grand Slam in November to defend her title!
Next up is a story from Par Bowman, who told one of the cautionary tales she shares with her children — about how she got her second tattoo
Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from Paul Armstrong. Paul shared the real story behind his mother's account of the time he and his brother took their Christmas wagon out for a spin.
All the winners from this year’s open mic story slam events will return to compete for the title of Best Storyteller in York.
