Really, life

Created on Mar 18, 2019.

How it works

Listeners and creators submit personal stories, true or false.

I record them. I post a tweet to the recording with a poll asking simply: real or made up?

The following hashtags:

The #ReallyLifeXX is for a specific episode. So, #ReallyLife1 is episode one.

Stories should be less than 3,000 words and may be submitted by any means you deam suitable.




We’re all storytellers. We learn through story. We are entertained by story.

Whether at a cocktail party, on a first date, or during times of absolute and unabashed vulnerability it is our stories that bind us.

You’ve probably heard a gut-wrenching tale or two from someone that made you want to weep or hold them for eternity. You’ve probably heard stories of mishap and situational comedy that made your stomach hurt from laughter.

Really, Life? Collects both types of stories and all points in-between and records them for the world to hear. You have until the end of the episode to determine whether you think the story is:

The stories will remain anonymous to the author. So, even if your story is real and more of a confession, you won’t be called out (unless legally required, like plotting murder or suicide; so, don’t send those)l

Authors want to test their ability to create convincing dialogs and scenes for their fiction. Others sometimes just want to have the story they’ve never been able to share “out there” like a message in a bottle.

Really, Life? is a venue for both.

Please understand that by submitting a story you are accepting legal liability for the use of the names of all individuals. I highly recommend you use fictitious name to protect all involved; or, get agreements from the parties that it is okay to use their name in the story. Regardless, the liability is on you there.
