Taboo Tales Podcast
About This Show
We define a taboo story as something you would never EVER talk about at the dinner table. Even after a few glasses of wine.
Society has made the rules, and our mission is to break them because we honestly believe: The more we all talk about how fucked up we are, the more normal we all feel.
Since establishing our stage show in 2010, Taboo Tales has covered everything from living with HIV to being born without rectal muscles to blindness to being forty and lonely. One requirement is that all stories be funny. Laughing about life is the key to letting go. This podcasts brings storytellers off the stage and into the studio for a story and discussion.
Taboo Tales and this podcast are produced by Corey Podell, Laurenne Sala, and Jeff Payne. Find out more at tabootales.org.

Pure honesty at its funniest!
This show has fascinating content which reaches straight down to the core of a person. The guests are open and honest, sharing their darkest secrets with no shame, and with a sense of humor. I love the interview portion of the show where they delve deeper into the storyteller's life. I think this show is revolutionary. It's so good to know I'm not alone in some of my crazy thinking!
