Confabulation

Confabulation: The Podcast is a project from the producers of Montreal’s most popular monthly all-true storytelling series. The podcast will take favourite stories from the live show, and expand them with interviews and other material, exploring the tales, the tellers, and the reason why we share these stories.

Confabulation is a unique storytelling event in Montreal where all the stories are true. They are honest accounts, told without notes, props, or gimmicks. The show is inspired by The Moth, and millennia of oral tradition history, and hopes to encourage the practice and art of storytelling in this contemporary world.

#2 • Katherine Hanz (Season 1)

February 17, 2013

In this episode, Matt talks with Katherine Hanz — academic librarian at McGill University. They revisit the story Kat told two years ago at Confabulation presents: Family. Kat’s story weaves together her family history with her own, and the interview explores this delicate interplay, the challenge of authenticity when sharing a story, and some other surprising topics. Or at least one really unexpected one. Music from Bent by Elephants and Gabrielle Papillion; two artists you need to check out.
