High Stakes Podcast

About the High Stakes Podcast
Every Monday, professional storyteller Sage Tyrtle brings you true stories that matter, the moments from her city she wants to share with you, and stories from her own strange life. Was Brian able to fool the cops long enough to retrieve the wayward package that threatened to send him to jail for years? What happened when Nikki encountered a jealous goose? How did Jess’s fake name give her secret powers? Find out what happens in these thrilling true stories.

Submit your true story or just get in touch.

Twice a month, I send out a brief email including storytelling tips, advance notice of my upcoming performances, and workshop opportunities. If you’d like to be included on this list (and only this list: two emails, twice a month) please sign up by clicking here.
