Welcome to the York Story Slam podcast, where we feature select stories from our monthly open mic storytelling events hosted at Holy Hound Taproom in York, Pennsylvania.
Our theme for the August StorySlam was Food Stories. We heard stories about eating, cooking, eating (or not) to make weight for wrestling, and wildlife being attracted to s'mores-sticky children asleep in their tents.
Mike Pritchard won with his story about the time he and his friends invented a new food.
Next up is Susan Crawford. Susan shared a story about a time when, as a schoolgirl in England, she wrote a story that embarrassed her parents.
Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from Melissa Snavely, who told us about the time that s'mores put her family in danger.
All the winners from this year’s open mic story slam events will return to compete in our Grand Slam in November 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 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.
Our podcast is produced with support from Our York Media. They're all about thoughtful storytelling, so we couldn't imagine a better partner. Visit their website for stories about some of our neighbors.
We hope to see you on stage soon! Thanks for listening.
