So glad I found you guys!

I love the Moth but I wanted more and started searching out different storytelling podcasts and when this came up I really liked the name “The Stoop”, so clever! I didn’t know it was a Baltimore thing and I haven’t lived in Baltimore but I have fallen in love with her and everybody’s storys . I get a sense of the culture there that feels nostalgic with its own special humor, maybe because my family is Italian and Irish and catholic and came out of Pittsburgh, idk but I love these stories. I also really appreciate the hosts; two fine gals with great with great hosting chemistry and some dry wit! So thank you for adding Baltimore’s own voice in storytelling podcasts !

Pretty Good

I enjoy them and the Baltimore flavor is familiar to someone who lives pretty close to that town.

Stories 👍

Storytelling podcasts are my thing. Moth, Risk, Snap Judgement, Story Collider, Neighbors, Strangers....you see my point. While the stories featured here are generally less polished, they are oftentimes exceptionally entertaining.
I give only 3 stars because the ‘hosts’ of this podcast are, quite literally, UNBEARABLE. Their voices are grating and neither can string together 3 words without an ‘um’ or ‘er’. The intros are sophomoric and unnecessary. I only listen when I can easily fast forward through their gibberish.
