The Monti Podcast

The Monti is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing community through the telling of stories. Since its founding in 2008, audiences have been flocking to the sold out shows across North Carolina to listen to true stories told by bestselling authors, musicians, poets, local celebrities, and just about anyone with a great story to tell.

While it has been impossible to meet the demand for our live shows, The Monti Podcast is a way to bring the energy and feel of a given event to anyone craving great personal narratives. The stories appearing within our weekly podcast are all drawn from our live shows and reflect the very best of The Monti and our offshoot series, The Monti StorySLAM.
