1.1 "Scared to Death" StorySlamSeason I was recorded live at Kennedy's Midtown in Boston, MA on October 26th, 2009. Features stories by Winner Paul Hlebowitsch, Kevin Brooks, Bruce Marcus and more. Our very first story slam saw a filled venue and people eager to hear ten tellers, who were chosen at random tell their true 5 minute story on the night’s theme. At this event, more than half of the audience was introduced to story slams and storytelling.

Norah Dooley and Josh Fine transferred and converted audio files from our video collection to create these podcasts. There is some uneven quality and not all issues that occurred in the taping could be resolved in post production. Sorry. Josh Fine and I worked as "audio engineers" supported with technical assistance from Harrison Swyter.
