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.

    Ready, Set, Go!

    A Light Around Her

    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.  

    Adult content.

    Please note:  Throughout the episode, I mention Amy's organization, CAPPSKIDS.org and mistakenly label it as a foundation.  My apologies.

Real-life 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!
