Here's a story recorded earlier this week at a story slam put on by The Monti -- it's a local organization that asks people to go on stage and tell a personal story – without a script or notes. At story slams, audience members drop their names into a hat for the chance to tell a five-minute story on a theme. There are judges -- and winners and losers. This week the theme was “vices” and Dave Van Hook got one of the top scores for the night. This is his story – recorded in Durham earlier this week at The Monti’s Story Slam about vices.
