Laura Wexler of the Stoop on Connecting with Others Through Unscripted Storytelling
Through the Noise #210
Laura Wexler // Writer, Editor, Teacher, Producer // The Stoop – Storytelling Series
Laura Wexler has been in the storytelling business for a decade and is host of the popular live storytelling event “the Stoop” in Baltimore. The Stoop has an archive of nearly 1000 stories told by different people — real life stories that don’t revolve around a moral or a script — and allow listeners and the storyteller to deeply connect with each other. Although live storytelling events are now common in most cities around the U.S., when Ms. Wexler started the Stoop, few people understood the concept, but now they sell out every time because people are clamoring to hear other people being real. The Stoop is now a podcast — you should check it out!
Laura Wexler is the co-founder and co-producer of The Stoop Storytelling Series, a Baltimore-based live show and podcast that features “ordinary” people telling the extraordinary true stories of their lives. Laura frequently presents workshops and coaching sessions to nonprofits and businesses that want to harness the power of true, personal storytelling to communicate a larger story.
The Stoop Storytelling Series is a popular live show and podcast that features the extraordinary true tales of “ordinary” people. Since its founding in 2006, The Stoop has sold out nearly every show, and recently expanded its listenership through a weekly podcast.
