The Story Must Be Told: Psalms 1

Psalms I is the first collection of poetry from the podcast The Story Must Be Told. Profane, heretical, and occasionally touching, these psalms elicit the trademark laughs and abdominal gurgles of The Story Must Be Told in bite size, healthy chunklets.

All your favorite psalms are here-Scabby Dong, The Bug King, Theresa Memorial Parkway, The Patron Saint of T.G.I. Fridays, and as a special bonus, the infamous epic of soda-become-flesh, The Ballad of Prepsa. Plus, who could forget this fresh stinker:

"Today for
Show and tell,
I brought a
Sinful old man"
Ralphie reached
Into his rucksack,
Revealing a
Greasy geriatric man
Dripping with want,
Brimming with desire
The class clapped

The clergy of the Story has thoughtfully divided their work into categories for ease of reference and worship: Psalms of Gratitude, Psalms of Fertility, Psalms of Grease, Psalms of Prudence, and Psalms of Dining. Inspirational illustrations from decorated congregant Sishir Bommakanti grace each section, and adorn the Ballad of Prepsa in good order as well. Plump on it

The Story Must Be Told is a surreal fiction anthology podcast on the Last Podcast Network. The AV Club praised, "Is The Story Must Be Told] weird as all hell? Yep. But it's also endlessly creative, something truly distinct." Listen on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Play, or wherever you prefer to listen to greasy short stories.
