Real Stories MKE
In 2022, Ex Fabula worked with 89.7 WUWM to start Real Stories MKE, a podcast and radio show that features true personal stories from the Milwaukee community. Every week hosts Kim Shine & Joel Dresang share recorded stories on select themes from Ex Fabula’s monthly StorySlams. Real Stories MKE is produced by Ex Fabula staff, and the Audio Engineer is Sam Woods.
Real Stories MKE was voted Best Local Podcast in the Shepherd Express’s Best of Milwaukee 2022 contest. Shepherd Express reporter Allen Halas said this about Real Stories MKE,
“Presented in collaboration with WUWM and Ex Fabula, Real Stories MKE highlights the people and ideas that make Milwaukee unique. Each story is recorded from a live Ex Fabula event and compiled around a central theme by hosts Kim Shine and Joel Dresang. In an effort to connect the city’s many neighborhoods and backgrounds, the podcast serves as a common ground for all of Milwaukee to come together.”
