How can you get in on it?
After a year’s hiatus from our regular programming, Oral Fixation (An Obsession with True Tales) is back! And we are currently prepping for our first show of Season 6! We are on the hunt for six courageous storytellers to join our headliner, former Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson. Together, we’ll “Jump Off a Cliff” at our Season 6 opener, which will go live on November 3rd!
If you are up for the challenge, please submit your true-life tale about when you threw caution to the wind, felt hopeless but found a way, jumped from a very high cliff, took a leap of faith, or followed a friend down the wrong path (despite parental protestations!). Or simply surprise us with your own unique take on the theme!
