Tales from the Round World is a storytelling podcast recorded live in front of a bunch of rowdy drunks. Our live shows feature a bunch of badass writers and performers telling stories based on a theme accompanied by live Foley SFX and audience participation. All of this is interspersed with some kickass sideshow, circus, music and burlesque. All the while we're raising money for some awesome nonprofits who are trying to keep things afloat while the current administration has its head up its ass. As long as there's #fakenews, we'll be spinning tales.
