StoryShout is a weekly podcast, hosted by Kelsey Jones, that focuses destigmatizing being terrible at something. Each week, we talk with a guest and ask them "What do you suck at?" Answers have ranged from humorous, like interior design, to more serious career topics, like delegation. Whereas some podcasts want to make you better, we want to humanize failure by discussing the "why" but not the "how can I fix it?"

    Kelsey Sucks at Finishing Projects

    Kelsey Sucks at Finishing Projects

    It's Kelsey Jones' turn in the hot seat as Casey Markee fills in as host for this week's StoryShout episode. Kelsey discusses the struggle to finish projects, especially creative ones (which dovetails nicely with last week's episode with Jon Henshaw!). Casey and Kelsey discuss finishing craft projects, getting sidetracked, and learning when to walk away instead of forcing yourself to finish something.

    Jon Sucks at Keeping The Main Thing, The Main Thing

    Jon Henshaw joins Kelsey Jones this week as we discuss the struggle that comes with being creative: constantly starting new projects and taking side quests to constantly "improve" things, only to our detriment. We talk about when "done is better than perfect," some side projects we're working on, and more!

    Abbey Sucks at Laundry

    Kelsey is joined by her cousin Abbey Elliott as we discuss a big thing most everyone sucks at: LAUNDRY. Yes, the dreaded laundry. We discuss the magic of black leggings, laundry with kids or spouses, and the smell that comes from wet laundry that needs to be dried. Time for a rewash!

    Marsha Sucks at Going to Bed on Time

    Marsha Shandur has a flip phone and all kinds of social media blockers...yet she still manages to not go to bed at a decent hour. Kelsey and Marsha discuss time for yourself after kids are down, the allure of old Sex and the City and Seinfeld episodes, and how even locking yourself out of social media doesn't help us go to bed earlier.

Failure is success!

Celebrating failure is at least as important as celebrating success-if not more. This show does this in a positive way with good humor and no attempts to fix problems with any kind of magic bullet solutions we all know won't work anyway!

Unique premise

Really unique premise with a variety of guests talking about all different kinds of topics. I like that the episodes aren’t too long and the guests aren’t afraid to poke fun at themselves.
