first live show

May 5, 2011

We had a wonderful  time at teller2teller’s first ever live show. If you were there and want to relive the fantastic night then down load the podcast. If you couldn't make it ( and I know a whole bunch of you had a wedding to go to) then you have the wonderful opportunity to download the whole night recorded live and listen like you were there – you see, we look after you – we don't want you to miss out!

I have to apologise for the audio being a bit rough, baby steps and all that – still learning. But the next show will be better.

Speaking of the next show, get your listening ears on and come along. The next show is on at Kerbside on Wednesday 25 May 2011 from 6pm – 8pm. We will have a few story tellers and a wonderful host for your story listening pleasure – but you will also get a chance to tell your own story! So keep your eyes and ears peeled for the details!

On this episode of teller, recorded at the first ever live show we bring you 4 amazing people:

Story teller Louise Phillips (http://www.louptales.com) Louise told a wonderful old Irish folktale called The Man Without a Story - It’s the idea that we all have a story inside of us, even when we doubt ourselves. I think this was just a fabulous tale for the first ever live show because the tag line for teller2teller has always been "every one's got a story and every one's a teller"

Story teller Phil Laidlaw (www.lofly.com ).  Phil worked as an OT at an institution at Wacol with people with an intellectual disability, and told a bit of a story about the people he met there - he talked about how we all kind of live up (or down) to the expectations set for us.

Story teller  Sean Dowling. Sean is a graphic designer for a major theatre, and he told a story about his relationship with his dad and it was amazing. He talked about how sometimes you don't know what you have until its gone and he moved everyone in the room.

We also had an amazing host for the night - her name was Lucinda Shaw. Lucinda is an very talented performer who does a wide range of things, not least of which is being the singer and a major contributor to creative genius behind a band called Silver Sircus. She made the show run really smoothly and brought it together professionally, and was kind enough to share some of her beautiful poetry!

Hope you love it!! Let me know!!

And don't forget to contact me about being a story teller at the next show at kerbside – pop over there for a drink and check the venue out.

Well howdy folks, its been a while.

So much to tell, so much to tell !!

We have three great story tellers who will tell their stories live to the audience. If you’re in Brisbane then you MUST come – all the details are here. If you’re not in Brisbane – stay tuned to the podcast because stories from the live shows will be featured on the podcast each month.

Teller 2 teller has a really cool 2011 lined up for you!

  • Teller2teller’s first ever guest produced episode, schools out is making its way to your earphones as we speak. Josh Man who is pulling this episode together tells me he will have it up mid May,
  • We have a great episode full of memories and stories from one of Queensland’s inspiring women, Fay Ison on its way to you, and
  • One of our favorite story tellers, Kirstie Anders is working on a story just for teller2teller listeners. Kirstie tells me this story is about friends and friendships and we will have that episode for you as soon as I get over to Kirstie and record her for you!

And Today’s episode, My desire for life, is a story that has been sent in anonymously to teller2teller, and I am going to read it for you myself. This might be a good time to remind you that I am always looking for people who want to narrate stories for teller2teller so if you are interested, email me.

teller2teller isn't for children, but still, I thought I would just let you know - this episode does have some swear words in it and talks about drug use and sex, so if your easily offended you might want to turn ths one off.

Remember, everyone has a story, and everyone is a teller.

Birth Love & Death: Part 3

Death

Welcome back podcasters,

It seems like ages since we spent any time together! It guess it kinda has been ages really. Anyway we're back!

This episode is the last one in the Birth Love and Death series, and not surprisingly, the last episode is about death.

In this episode we hear from Leon as he muses about death and reincarnation, we hear David talk about when his father passed away,  John shares a reading from Dante, and we hear a work of fiction from Kristie Anders with her suicide note. And, of course, like always we hear from a whole bunch of people who share a few of their own words about death.

A great big thanks goes to everyone who has contributed to teller2teller this episode; John Asprey, David Minihan, Kirstie Anders, Tanya Wallace,  Pai-Lin, Renee, Russell Davidson, Erwin Huig, Yvonne Wawrziniak, Kathryn Ellston, Stuart Greaves, Marissa, Ange Kilgour, Ann, Belinda Huig, Salome, Kara Harradine, Louise Mahoney & Kylie Houghton.

Remember everyone has a story and everyone is a teller.

Love

What an exciting episode!!

This is the second in the series on Birth Love and Death, predictably called Love. J We have some great contributions:

  • And a whole bunch of people talk about Love.

As if this wasn’t enough we also have a contribution from the award winning, international playwright, Van Badham. Van has not only contributed her thoughts on love in “11 Things I Have Learned About Love” but has also been kind enough to let me share with you an excerpt from her new book – Burnt Snow. If you want more of Van - poke your nose around her blog "The Book of the Witch".

 

I hope you love this episode and I hope you go and check out Burnt Snow (you can pick up a copy at QBD and Amazon sells a digital verson). 

A great big thanks goes to everyone who has contributed to teller2teller this episode; John Asprey, David Minihan, Kirstie Anders, Tanya Wallace,  Pai-Lin, Renee, Russell Davidson, Erwin Huig, Yvonne Wawrziniak, Kathryn Ellston, Stuart Greaves, Marissa, Ange Kilgour, Ann , Belinda Huig, Salome, Kara Harradine, Louise Mahoney & Kylie Houghton.

Horror Stories

July 27, 2010

Stories to tantalise, tease, and terrify!!!!

Welcome back podcast listeners! (www.teller2teller.com)

In this episode of teller we are trying something a little different!

A little while ago, I met a talented young writer from Brisbane by the name of Jasmine Latimer. Jasmine is in her first year of Uni but has already finished he first novel and is on her way with her second! While Jasmine is on the lookout for a publisher she has contributed some of her work to teller2teller so you can get a taste of her talent.

Jasmine has three short stories for teller2teller all with the theme of horror,  so get ready to hide yourself under you covers, feel shivers up your spine or have your hair stand on end…..

Enjoy, and let Jasmine and I know what you think!!

Natural Disasters

June 20, 2010

Hi Podcast Listeners!!

Sorry it's been a bit longer than usual to get a story to you.  Things have been pretty crazy around here in the last month! But here we are.

This episode of teller2teller has two stories, both about natural disasters and volunteering to help out when its needed. For those who experience floods, cyclones etc, it can no doubt be pretty life changing. But what about the people who go to provide help? It has a big effect on them too. Both of today's stories are from people who have volunteered at sites of natural disaster in Queensland. One story titled "It changes you" was submitted anonymously. The second story, "Larry" was written and read by Kirstie, a regular teller2teller contributor. Kirstie is a young author from here in Brisbane. Kirstie has written some fantastic stories, some of which she has shared here on teller2teller, but if you would like to read more of her work, head over to Kirsties blog .

If you would like to read more about the storms and cyclones in today's episode have a look at the following links for a range of information and images:
