Live storytelling events have increased in popularity recently, but audio listening parties are still relatively rare. A monthly event called "Audio Under the Stars" seeks to change that in Durham.
Its organizers see audio stories as vehicles to other times and occasions for social engagement. The latest installment, "Fish Out Of Water: Stories of misfits, oddballs, mariners and real fish", is Friday at 8pm at SPECTRE Arts in Durham.
Below is a taste of the kind of stories "Audio Under the Stars" showcases.
Host Frank Stasio talks with organizers Elizabeth Friend and Jenny Morgan.
