If only I had the nerve
I’ve been to several live Dublin Story Slam events, which are always great fun, and am always lost in admiration of the people who stand up to tell their stories. It’s great to have the podcast to listen back or to hear the stories you’ve missed.
Great podcast and really well curated
I was expecting this to just be a recording of the live Story Slam show (which is great, by the way) but actually, it’s very thoughtfully curated making it a very enjoyable podcast to listen to. Irish people are amazing at telling stories and this is a series of great examples of just what natural storytellers we are!
