Episode 12-story shuffle

We all have an instinct to do some vengeful things. On this episode of Story Shuffle, our storytellers share about the times they experienced revenge. First, Lindsey McNeil tells us about when she found revenge on Mischief Night. Then, Brady Dale will tell the story of the time he was hit by a car — and he probably deserved it.

episode-9

Most times we go with our gut. On the ninth episode of Story Shuffle, the weekly first-draft storytelling podcast, we hear two stories of people doing just that, experiencing First Impressions. First we have author and literary agent Eric Smith remembering the first day he moved to Philadelphia — and the cultural differences between there and New Jersey. Next, journalist Daniel Victor shares his first look at a conference of pickup artists — yes, pickup artists.

I told a hitchhiking story, tightened from a version I told at a past Story Shuffle in 2011. So this was the second time I told it. Find it below.
