This episode features another instalment of the Stories We Don’t Tell monthly event. Recorded live in June, the event included personal stories from Stefan Hostetter, Erin Kang, Paul Dore, Brianne Benness and Jonathan Finny. We also want to thank special musical guest Arlene Paculan, who played a few songs throughout the evening (you’ll hear this previous podcast guest at the beginning and end of the event).

Stories We Don’t Tell originated from Let’s Get Personal, a writing group started by Brianne. Every two weeks we shared (and continue to share) personal stories about our lives. After establishing a positive environment, we wondered if this could be brought to an audience. For some behind-the-scenes information about the event, check out Episode 96. This was the first instalment of Stories We Don’t tell on the podcast and includes interviews with the storytellers.

The stories cover a lot of ground, including exploring family history, relationships and personal experiences. This episode once again brings you right into the event. Stay tuned for more from the Stories We Don’t Tell in the future.
