Tell The Bartender - A Storytelling Podcast

In this Episode:

Jim educates us about "Devil's Night" (the night before Halloween), and how a prank he played on a neighbor went terribly, terribly wrong. Then things got worse. 

And The Bartender recalls the time a joke she made got taken a little too seriously. It involves playing in a punk band called "Bitch Chicks On The Rag".

I'll Accept The Charges: Very recently Clementine got a collect call from a correctional facility. It was her long lost uncle asking for help. But as time went on, the only things that started to add up in his story were the phone charges. Then things got weird. Clementine is using her real name but all other names and locations have been changed to protect the innocent - and the guilty.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong: Jackson found out the hard way - the very hard way - what happens when you throw a little party in your boss's house while they're away and put the invite on Facebook. Again, Jackson is using his real name but others have been changed to protect a certain restraining order.
