1.9 " In Like a Lion" StorySlam Season I - was recorded live at Ryles Jazz Club in Cambridge MA on March 21st, 2010. Features stories by Kevin Brooks, Diana Weisner, Judith Black and Norah Dooley
Each month people crowded into venues all over the city to hear ten tellers, who were chosen at random tell their true 5 minute story on the night’s theme. At each event, more than half of the audience was introduced to story slams and storytelling. It’s clear that our high-tech society is ripe for some low-tech action. And the essentially human experience of storytelling is fitting the bill.

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