Giuliana Serena, lead Beekeeper, returns with the winning story from the latest Bee, the lovingly competitive storytelling forum held every other month in SLC. This time, the place was The Urban Lounge. The theme of the night was Lost & Found. Ten names were pulled from the hat, with each person telling a true story in five minutes without notes. You may have heard the clip we’ve been playing on KRCL, but below is the full account of night when then-rookie EMT John Park answered his first amputation call. Warning: this story is not suitable for all ages or the squeamish!

 

The Bee John Park 081215 fullpodcast     

 

The next Bee: Saturday night, October 10, at The Leonardo, 209 E. 500 S., Salt Lake City. The theme will be “Here & Hereafter.”

How to participate: you can come and just enjoy or put your name in the hat to tell a story. Ten storytellers picked at random from a hat have five minutes each to tell a true tale, on the theme of the night, without notes. To get tickets and put your name in the hat, visit TheBeeSLC.org. The Bee usually sells out, so we recommend getting your tickets early.

And keep listening for more clips from The Bee, a podcast partner, on 90.9fm KRCL.
