"BEST IN SHOW" STORY SLAM
A How I Learned Series Production

Host: 
This Month's Judges: 
DAVID CRABB 
(Host, Ask Me Stories; The Moth)
PETER AGUERO 
(HostBare; The Moth)
DANA ROSSI 
(Host, The Soundtrack Series)

Here's How It Works: Drop your name in the hat for a chance to tell (not read) 
a 5-MINUTE story. No themes. No scores. Just warm, thoughtful, constructive 
feedback from a rotating panel of seasoned judges who may or may not be liquored 
up at any given time during the show. Judges confer at the end of the night to crown 
the "Best in Show." Winner gets fabulous prizes. (Probably just verbal 
accolades and a bag of chocolates from Duane Reade.)
