Hello and Welcome to the Story Attic. On this podcast I help to tell the stories of friends, family, and strangers as they reveal life changing experiences that have rarely, if ever, been discussed with anyone before. The purpose of this podcast is to share the wild, fascinating, scintillating and sometimes tragic stories of the people you pass on the street, your old friend from school, the guy you sit next to at the office, your wicked old aunt, or the checkout person at the supermarket.
Wow - Just Wow
On this episode of the Story Attic we hear the story of Frank Walker and his remarkable and inspirational tale of being born with a rare condition and the first recipient of an experimental surgery to save and ultimately extend his life after being told he would not live beyond one year from birth.

Ready, Set, Go!
On this episode, I share a brief story about a very personal life choice I made more than two and a half decades ago, how it impacted others, and being confronted with a difficult choice forcing me to revisit that decision.
Intended for listeners over the age of 18.
A Light Around Her
On this week's episode, I continue my conversation with Amy where we discuss her son's difficult diagnoses from the time he was very young, the organization she founded to help families like hers, and she reveals how she came to adopt three children -- 26 years apart. The details are riveting and Amy gracefully and fearlessly discusses the ups and downs.
Please note: Throughout the episode, I mention Amy's organization, CAPPSKIDS.org and mistakenly label it as a foundation. My apologies.
Things are OK with me these days
On our first episode of the Story Attic, you'll hear my conversation with my childhood friend, Amy, who grew up in a chaotic home with a narcissist and a co-dependent, and whose father would later be arrested for a perverse and twisted crime.
Our show contains adult themes and is intended for listeners over the age of 18.

Just a little theme song
Welcome to The Story Attic. Please enjoy our song while you await our first episode of storytelling.
This is the first pod cast I have ever listed to and I am hooked! Please keep sharing your amazing stories. 💗
I’m really enjoying this podcast. Each episode is better than the last. The fact that these stories are from real-life situations is incredibly intriguing. I can’t wait to hear the next story! Well done.
Obsessed with this pod!
I love this podcast so much! Every story is filled with depth, heart, and told with so much passion. Getting people to share about their personal lives isn’t easy, but Lisa asks such great questions and listens with an open, compassionate ear. So, it’s no surprise that she’s able to get them to open up. The theme song is also so beautiful and touching. I can’t wait to continue to hear stories from REAL humans navigating life. Thank you Story Attic!
