Help us make a year-end compilation!

• November 25th, 2013

Hi everybody,

The Your Stories podcast has been going for two years now. And just like last year, we thought we'd use this time to reflect back on the previous 12 months of stories, songs, bits and whatever else we've heard. We'd love it if you all could help us. 

Basically, we're putting together another year-end compilation, and what we want to know is this - what's your favorite stuff from the past year? What stories stuck with you the most? What songs couldn't you get out of your head? Let us know your picks, and also tell us why they're your picks. We'll take some of those and put them together into one episode that nicely sums up the year. 

It's important to note that this isn't a contest and there isn't really voting involved. It's more of a nomination system - tell us why you like something and we'll share that insight with our listeners!

Content in every episode from December 2012 Part 1 (Happy Birthday Dear Nerdologues) to November 2013 Part 2 (Other Options) is eligible for nomination, including any bonus episodes. 

You can post your choices here or email them to We'll keep this open for like 3 weeks so please get your choices in by December 16.

Thanks as always for your continued support; we have a fantastic year 3 cooking!


November 2013: Other Options, Part 2

• November 25th, 2013

  • Bennett Bottero: Different Worlds
  • Mike Chuck Bretzlaff: The Wrestler

We've finished another great year of Your Stories podcasts, which means it's time for another end of the year compilation! More information on how to contribute to that compilation can be found in the episode (and will be forthcoming on this website as well). Thanks everyone for your continued support!
