Back Fence PDX Radio, produced in collaboration with Back Fence PDX and OPB. We take the best stories from our live shows in Portland, then run them by a radio fairy who sprinkles magic radio dust on them so that the stories may be broadcast across airwaves and inter-webs. Live shows have been playing to packed audiences since 2008. The show pays homage to The Moth Radio Hour and is also the kissing cousin to San Francisco’s Porch Light storytelling series.

Back Fence PDX Radio alternates with The Moth Radio Hour to continue Saturday night storytelling on OPB.

Amazing Storytelling

I love Back Fence PDX! I recently discovered it after running out of stories to listen to on the Moth. I will have to attend the live shows soon. I've heard so many fun and interesting stories here and will likely listen to some of them multiple times. Awesome!
