Stories - True Stories Shared Live

Welcome to Tell Us Something. All of the stories are shared live and without notes. We hope you enjoy.

In the summer of 2019, Tell Us Something hosted a storytelling summer camp for youth at Zootown Arts Community Center. Seven young women worked together with Tell Us Something director Marc Moss for a week during the summer of 2019 to learn about how to decide what story to share, stage presence, story structure, elements of a story, keeping ourselves, our audience, and the characters in a story safe as well as making an emotional connection with the audience.
Listen to stories about surviving a grizzly bear attack, a mother’s vigil over her sick children in the hospital, a scientist who discovers a connection between lead ammunition and lead in the bloodstreams of large birds like eagles, and a man who snorts his crown into his sinus cavity during what was supposed to be a routine visit to the dentist.
In this week’s podcast you’ll hear stories about a traffic stop that goes sideways on a road trip in Mississippi, the unexpected healing grace of a destructive hailstorm, a quadrepalegic who does the work required, to make a full recovery, and a bear tramping through a campground at night making things scary for our storyteller.
In this episode you’ll hear stories about a young man and his nefarious band of misfits smuggling weed across the Canadian border, then, join a young queer couple on a road trip in the south, rent a car in Ireland without the proper insurance and finally, fall in love with a dubious ranch hand in Dillon, Montana.
Stories about a young woman who drops acid with her boyfriend before embarking on a hitchhiking trip to San Francisco, we accompany a mailman on his daily route in Helena, Montana, go for a ride in a new Jeep that has some curious vanity plates and avoid getting paint on our Sunday clothes as we complete a chore before church.
