Welcome to the York Story Slam podcast, where we feature select stories from our monthly open mic storytelling events in York, Pennsylvania.

On January 17, 10 storytellers shared their stories with our audience at Holy Hound Taproom in downtown York.

Our theme for the evening was Blank Canvas. We heard stories about starting over, art exhibits, and literal blank canvases turned into works of art. Matt McDunnell won with his story about switching high schools his senior year.

Next up is Debbie Gable. Debbie, a regular at York Story Slam, told us about learning how to best interact with her two sons, who had very different personalities and needs.

Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from Rita Whitney, who shared a story about the art installation she created to simulate her experience with a VNS device to prevent epileptic seizures.

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 at @yorkstoryslam, as well as on Facebook, and watch videos of all the stories from our events 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, Roy Pitz Brewing Company.
