It's a family affair...

Laura Wexler and Jessica Myles-Henkin share their favorite tales from the Stoop about families with skeletons in the closet - and what happens when they come out.

Steve Luxenburg's mother can no longer keep the enormous secret she's kept for decades. It turns out that Jen Mendelsohn has a bigger family than she thought she did.  

The song at the end of this episode is "Time Has Told Me" by Nick Drake.

Laura Wexler and Jessica Myles-Henkin are back for a fifth season of tales from the Stoop Storytelling Series in Baltimore, Maryland. This week, storytellers face off - or come to terms with - their foes.  

Shelley Blake-Plock has a blanket-wearing, Billy Joel-loving bully who makes his life hell. Laurel Clark's enemy is way too close for comfort.

Laura Wexler and Jessica Myles-Henkin share stories from the Stoop about home - making it, losing it and leaving it. 

Nancy Murray finds home and family after she loses the only home she ever really had. Joe Challmes' apartment becomes a home for lost boys. Adote Akwei can't go back to his native Togo, but he's come to love his new home in the U.S. (in spite of the absurdity of American football).
