Welcome to the York Story Slam podcast, where we feature select stories from our monthly open mic storytelling events in York, Pennsylvania. On August 20th, ten storytellers shared their stories with our audience at Holy Hound Taproom in downtown York.
The theme for our August story slam was INTO THE WILD. We heard stories of hiking, biking, and swimming in the wilderness, and stories of navigating dangerous situations in remote locations. In the end, our winner was Ash DeVoe, who won with her story about an unusual outdoor portrait session.
Ash earned a spot in our Grand Slam in November. Next up we have a story from Brian Spence, who shared the lessons he learned from a hike that left his father breathless.
Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from Ty Lohr. Ty told the story of a first date that included a sunset hike.
All the winners from this year’s monthly open mic story slam events will return to compete for the title of Best Storyteller in York at 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 and 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.
