Last night was a blast -- a sell-out crowd, and amazing talent. Here are a few pictures Sanden snapped:

No specific broadcast date just yet -- will likely be late September or October, depending on the needs of our In The Loop show schedule. And we're considering when to hold the next Story Slam -- October, maybe. Stay tuned!
Where do all these talented people come from?!
I was really impressed with the range of stories. Some sad, some hilarious, some lyrical and others totally conversational. The coolest thing is how different everyone's style is.
Keep up the good work people! I'm already looking forward to the next one.
I agree with Sanden's comment above. As interesting or entertaining as each story might be in it's own right, it's the synergy of mixing them all together that really creates something amazing. I had fun speaking and listening. Thanks EVERYBODY! Linda Lee
What a great night! Such a diversity of voices; it was tons of fun to participate and kudos to the Loop for providing such a unique way for the community to share its stories!
