50: Lorinda Esposito — Blue Suede Education


When the theme is "sacrifice" you know there will be plenty of stories about parenthood. In Episode 50 we bring you another one, this time from Lorinda Esposito. In this story Lorinda talks about her passion for shoes in her younger days, and how that gave way to passion for her kids later.

Lorinda told this story on July 7, 2017 at our Story Night of Champions. We're working through each story from that night in order. Lorinda was the seventh of nine.

The song for this episode is Boogie Shoes, by KC and the Sunshine Band.

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.

39: Kim Weaver — Smitten While Sittin'

Think back to when your life changed in a big way. Was it gradual, or was it like a bolt of lightning? Kim Weaver told us at Story Night in June about a moment when the change she had been undergoing came to a sudden flash point. Literally.

While she didn't probably appreciate the ammo it gave her detractors, she doesn't seem to have many regrets.

Kim told this story on June 1, 2017, when our theme was "By the Book." She was the night's top storyteller, which means she'll back in July, competing in the Not Quite Annual Highly Irregular Story Night of Champions. You want to be there for that.

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.
