No, YOU Tell It! is a nonfiction reading series dedicated to performing true-life tales with a twist: Each participant develops their own story on the page and then flips scripts with a partner to
present each other’s story on stage. Podcast episodes feature one pair of swapped stories from our live shows in NYC.
Episode 70 – Punch Up (Part 2)
Celebrating 10 years of No, YOU Tell It!, the second half of our “Punch Up” show starts with the story of a waitress getting a visit from a former co-worker who looks happier and healthier than seems possible. Trying to match her glow-up, she seeks out the same Shaman but finds the visit … less […]

Episode 68 – Legacy Anthology Reboot
In anticipation of our forthcoming ten-year anthology from Palm Circle Press, we are flashing back to 2014 when we participated in The Brick’s Comic Book Theater Festival in Brooklyn. For this show, we tried something new. Usually, we give our storytellers a theme to inspire their true tales. This time, we only provided the theme […]

Episode 66 – Noted (Part 2)

In celebration of 10 Years of No, YOU Tell It! enjoy this 2013 throwback swap of “You’ve Been Noted,” written by […]
Episode 65 – Alumni Show (Part 2)

Nothing else like it
There are so many storytelling shows and podcasts, but nothing is quite like this. Having the writers swap their stories with other writers is pure genius. Kudos to the creator.
Different and surprising
You never know what you’ll get with these stories. Will I laugh? Cry? Feel nostalgic? Feel understood? The stories make me feel like I’ve been allowed a glimpse into someone’s life, often to see something they may rarely share. And as a bonus, the short length (about 15-20 min/story) is perfect for the times that I listen.
Big, longtime fan
I love the work these folks do. Great stories. Great content out of a lot of varied people. Always an entertaining show.
