Welcome to the York Story Slam podcast, where we feature select stories from our monthly open mic storytelling events in York, Pennsylvania. On July 16th, eleven storytellers shared their stories with our audience at Holy Hound Taproom in downtown York.
The theme for our July Story Slam was WORK IT OUT. We heard stories of riding out changes in the workplace, facing adversity, and perseverance. In the end, our winner was Randy Bucksner, who won with his story about the unexpected horrors - or caring for - young grandchildren.
Randy earned a spot in our Grand Slam in November. Next up we have a story from Matt Feeser, who told the story of racing the clock to board a cruise ship.
Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from Zachary Claghorn. Zachary talked about the high school experiences that led him to choose the path his life is now on.
All the winners from this year’s open mic story slam events will return to compete for the title of Best Storyteller in York during our Grand Slam in November. Tickets for our events are available on our website, and while you’re there, you can sign up for our monthly newsletter. You can also follow us on Twitter , Facebook, and watch videos of all the stories from our events on our YouTube channel.
We hope to see you on stage soon! Thanks for listening!
