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.

Next, journalist Daniel Victor shares his first look at a conference of pickup artists — yes, pickup artists.
