Welcome to the York Story Slam podcast, where we feature select stories from our monthly open mic storytelling events in York, Pennsylvania. On April 16, eleven storytellers shared their stories with our audience at Holy Hound Taproom in downtown York.
The theme for our April story slam was GOING THE DISTANCE. We heard stories of great physical distances traveled, geographic distances that felt hopelessly far, and two pregnancy and delivery stories.
In the end, our winner was Ty Lohr, who won with his story about the first road trip he and his friend took as adults.
Next up we have a story from Christina Kauffman, who shared a story about her childhood paper route.
Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from John Teske. John shared his story of the memorable hike he took on the eve of his 50th birthday.
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, and while you’re there, you can sign up for ourmonthly 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.
