We invite you to delve into ATM STORYTELLERS, a storytelling adventure brought to you by Across The Margin and ATM Media. In this podcast, you will hear stories that were — or will be — published at Across The Margin…read by the authors themselves. This podcast belongs to the writers and authors who bless our pages with their cunning wordplay and meticulously crafted stories.
While you can take in these stories at the webzine, ATM STORYTELLERS offers an opportunity for the listener to sit back and let the stories wash over them in the tone and fashion that the author intended. Here, stories come to life in a way that could never happen on your laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Here, these stories truly cross the Margin and take flight.
First up in this fourth episode of Season 2 is a story we share with a heavy heart as the author is no longer with us. A story wherein the fall of Communism offers an immigrant a space in time to heed their calling, that of a caregiver. A short story that ultimately asks: Who is it that helps the helpers? — Rimma Kranet’s “Mount Olympus”(1:54), read in loving tribute by her dear friend Stella Hayes. That is followed by a short story about how a crisis can yield clarity. How rejection can offer an opportunity for renewal and to prompt us to say the things we think but keep within us. “One Brick Missing” by Chris Parent (20:10).
