Taboo Tales

We believe the more we all talk about how fucked up we are, the more normal we all feel. We are sure of it. Since 2010, Taboo Tales has been bringing fucked up stories to stages in LA and NYC and watching audiences and performers leave looking relieved and way more normal. We’ve covered everything from living with HIV to being born without rectal muscles to going blind at 18 to being forty and lonely. All stories must be way too honest for most people and, of course, funny. Because life is always funny. The podcast brings storytellers into the studio where hosts, Corey Podell and Laurenne Sala, grill them even further for more juicy details. Find out more at tabootalestheshow.com
