Welcome to the York Story Slam podcast, where we feature select stories from our monthly open mic storytelling events in York, Pennsylvania. On June 16th, eight storytellers from York, Lancaster County, Philadelphia, Virginia, and Denver shared their stories with our audience. Our theme for the evening was PET PEEVES. We heard stories about things that get on people’s nerves, ways that people get on others’ nerves, and even a story about a pet who was constantly peeved. In the end, Brad Jennings won with his story about anxiety over finding enough space in the overhead compartment on an airplane. Brad earned a spot in our Grand Slam in November, a familiar space for him, as Brad was our very first Grand Slam champ back in 2016 and has emceed the Grand Slam every year since. Next up is a story from Summer Gonter, who shared a story about her angry-old-man cat, Bill. Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from Keith Bailey. Keith shared his story with a bit of a twist: How HIS driving is a pet peeve for others. All the winners from this year’s open mic story slam events will return to compete for the title of Best Storyteller in York.
