This episode features another instalment of the Stories We Don’t Tell monthly event. Recorded live in September, the event included personal stories from Brianne Benness, Erin Kang, Marcus Hinds, Stefan Hostetter, Shona Fulcher and Paul Dore.

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.

This event marked the one year anniversary of the event and also launched the Stories We Don’t Tell Podcast. Open Kwong Dore will continue to post the entire event every month and you can subscribe to both podcasts on iTunes. Every episode of the Stories We Don’t Tell podcast will feature one story, a discussion on a topic inspired by that story and/or an interview with the storyteller.
