    Scrip Excerpts:
    JAZZ
    Very funny, now get your #@! to work. We have solid orders throughout this week and next week and I need you to organize them by location on the spreadsheets.
    KENDRA
    Jazz, there’s no need to stress out, we got you!

    Yeah!
    Jazz
    You’re right, besides things are really good right now. We’re making more bank than we ever have. Soon we’ll have enough money to get out of these dorms and into a fly apartment.

    Toxically Sweet

    Toxically Sweet

    Trigger Warning: The subject matter of this fictional podcast episode includes teen stalking and teen violence that may be distressing to some.
    KIYANA GORDON has finally found a quiet corner to herself. With her recent rise in popularity since establishing a successful YouTube channel, she has felt like her life has been moving 100 miles per hour. Near constant content, keeping up with endorsements, and all of the people that now want to be her “friend”, she’s doesn’t exactly know how to feel. She’s happy that people know who she is and that she’s making money, but her life is starting to feel out of control.
    She crept off after fighting her way out of school through a crowd and walked around to the library hoping to catch a break. She is relieved to find that no one is really there and she revels in the moment’s peace, knowing that soon she’ll have to get back to work and back to people. She feels as if she is being watched, but she is most of the time so she just ignores it.

    The Target

    The Target

    Welcome as Tales Of The Text Podcast presents “The Target”. Khyree, star high school basketball player, is celebrating a game winning shot when he suddenly is approached by a police officer after becoming a person of interest in the death of his girlfriend Ronnie. Did he do it or is someone else to blame?
    Narration Excerpts
    Then the door opens, startling Khyree. An officer waves him out of the room. Khyree gets up hesitantly. When Khyree walks out, he sees NIA filling out some paperwork. A rush of relief comes over Khyree. 
    They drive in silence for what seems an eternity. The music relieves some of the tension, but not much. As they pull up and arrive at Khyree’s home, Nia turns down the music and puts the car in park. Khyree’s attention is fixated on his hands, his breathing is shallow, and he’s trying to compose himself. Nia puts her hand on Khyree’s knee, he is startled by her touch, as he was lost in thought.

    The Recording

    The Recording

    SHANI, 16-year-old high school student, sits horrified, mind racing only a bit faster than her
    heartbeat. She is in an abandoned classroom in the school, listening to her iPad. At only 5 feet
    tall, her feet swing off of the ground in the tall stools. She twists her braids in her hand
    nervously, feeling glad that she is wearing black. She feels less visible. It is like her worst
    nightmare come true. She listens in disbelief, hoping against hope that she is mistaken about
    what she heard. But she knows what it is. All over social media are words that she knows
    well because they come from her very own recordings. She wants to die.
    As she sits dazed, not wanting to listen, but not able to stop, 17-year-old TY comes bursting
    into the room. Tall and thin, he is wearing his professional attire for dress to impress day. He
    runs his hand across his waves and turns on SHANI.
    Welcome as Tales Of The Text Podcast presents "The Recording". Have you ever used voice memo and just walked away or have you ever secretly recorded your friends?
    Join us after the drama for our After The Text segment where we discuss the themes covered in the show. We discuss how the characters and story lines in the show relate to our own lives and what lessons we can take from this episode of Tales of the Text podcast.

Chicago’s Best Podcast

This podcast is my all time favorite notification 😂 I moved away from Chicago about a year ago and this podcast always warms my heart, pulls me to the edge of my seat, and makes me laugh! If you’re on the train ride home or just need something to listen to today, I highly recommend TOTT. Any episode is good start, the more you listen to more you’ll grow to love it if you don’t already love it after episode 1 💙
