The Stoop Storytelling Series

"Everyone has a story. What's yours?" The Stoop features "ordinary" people telling the extraordinary true tales of their lives in front of live audiences as large as 1,400. Stoop stories are weird, wonderful, hilarious, and heartbreaking — and, above all, intimate. Founders Laura Wexler and Jessica Henkin host the podcast.
