episode1-shuffle

This is the kickoff first episode of Story Shuffle, a first-draft storytelling podcast. For the next six months, every week we’ll share with you two of the best of more than 200 stories told over the last six years. In this first episode, we hear two stories that connect around the theme of LEAVING HOME. First, we hear Stephen Zook tell a story recorded in 2015 about growing up Amish. Second, Uri Pierre Noel shares memories of growing up in a Haitian immigrant family, as recorded at last year’s Philadelphia Podcast Festival. You’ll note some POPPING P’s in this first episode: forgive us, better to come.
