This one comes from The Moth series: True Stories Told Live. I love listening regularly, but this story has been my all-time favorite: a Detroit woman goes to a fortuneteller and learns she is cursed. Aren’t we all? Dame Wilburn is a community educator and chief marketing director, but what she really is is a comedian! Listen to her hilarious tale here.
Here’s an LA Times piece I read recently about a PTA president in Irvine, CA (one of the safest cities in the country) who was framed by vengeful parents. Truth is stranger than fiction, people! Read about it here.
Reading the piece above reminded me of another story–a Pulitzer prize-winning journalistic achievement on a rape mystery case. Excellent reporting that is a must-read here.
