We define a taboo story as something you would never EVER talk about at the dinner table. Even after a few glasses of wine.
Society has made the rules, and our mission is to break them because we honestly believe: The more we all talk about how fucked up we are, the more normal we all feel.
Since establishing our stage show in 2010, Taboo Tales has covered everything from living with HIV to being born without rectal muscles to blindness to being forty and lonely. One requirement is that all stories be funny. Laughing about life is the key to letting go. This podcasts brings storytellers off the stage and into the studio for a story and discussion.
Taboo Tales and this podcast are produced by Corey Podell, Laurenne Sala, and Jeff Payne. Find out more at tabootales.org
Host becomes guest on this very special episode! Laurenne Sala is obsessed with death. So much so, that she signed up for an anatomy class where she learned a lot about the body, and even more about the heart.
Comedian and writer, Aysha Wax, joins us to talk about the time in her life when she was a Jewish American Mormon Princess. This piece isn't just about religion - its about family, community, and identity. You'll love it! (And Aysha)
