Stoop Storytelling

The Stoop is a Baltimore-based live show and podcast founded by Laura Wexler and Jessica Henkin that features everyday people sharing the extraordinary true tales of their lives. The mission of The Stoop is to empower individuals and build community through the sharing of personal stories. Since its founding in 2006, The Stoop has featured the tales of more than 3,000 people onstage — including notable citizens such as Congressman Elijah Cummings, “The Wire” creator David Simon, activist DeRay Mckesson, and Senator Barbara Mikulski. The Stoop is featured weekly on 88.1, WYPR.
