Arc Stories

Imagine sitting around the dinner table with your closest friends. You’ve just cleared the dishes, and you’re moving on to coffee, or possibly a glass of wine. Someone says: you’ll never believe what happened to me today. Listen to this… Arc Stories features live storytelling from right here in Birmingham. No notes, no outlines. Just great storytellers sharing great (true) stories. Sometimes funny, sometimes moving, and always engaging.

(The audio refers to the program as Arc Light Stories — the previous name of the program.)

(Originally aired Thursday February 19, 2015 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.)
