We are pleased to now offer a Podcast that curates past OUTspoken stories for repeat listening. You can find the podcast here:
OUTspoken! has met with rave reviews:
“The room was abuzz after. People introduced themselves to the storytellers, hugged them, and thanked the emcees... It was truly great to be a part of it, even just as an audience member.”
-Parker Stockman Chicago Literati
"Such a fun and generous crowd, a wonderful place to tune in and be human together. What GREAT stories!"
"The best story telling event in Chicago! I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone."
When we are back to normal and holding OUTspoken at Sidetrack, grab a beverage from the bar and join us for a night of storytelling. Stay after OUTspoken! and enjoy TRL TUESDAY where we will spin everything you love from the 90's, 00's and today!... See MoreSee Less
