This time in Strangerville, four stories about exaggerated fear. College kids cause a stir in their small town. A child remembers a gas station encounter much more colorfully than his father. A bunch of 80s and 90s kids discuss a traumatizing episode of a popular children’s show. And a woman reflects on her trick-or-treating past. Stay tuned, and watch some people get irrationally scared in this special Halloween episode.

Please enjoy our third live storytelling show.
This time in Strangerville we explore stories about crime and punishment and how those two things don't always align. A mother mostly fails in her efforts to teach her six-year-old that stealing is wrong. A little boy's parents take things a little too far as they try to teach him a lesson. A drug-dealing teenager's luck runs out. And a man becomes a detective in search for his stolen bike. Please join us in the land where Strangers really do have the best candy.
