" Ooh You're in Trouble " Podcast Story Submissions

About The Event
Ooooh You’re in Trouble is a brand new series about the moments of defiance that define us. Each episode features true stories of young people (ages 10-25) confessing a moment they broke the rules growing up. It’ll be funny, educational, insightful and messy. Just like growing up. From “harmless” pranks to legit offenses, the series explores why we ALL get in trouble. What does it say about us? What can we learn from it? And how can understanding the different kinds of trouble help us?

How to Participate
WHO SHOULD SUBMIT We’re primarily seeking participants between ages 10-25. Those under 18 will be required to provide consent from a legal guardian. There will be some slots for those older than 25, too. WHAT TO SUBMIT All submissions must be about an event that occurred as a teen, tween or kid (regardless of your current age). Submissions can be funny, sad, strange, brave, risk taking, karmic and justice seeking. What not to submit? Stories where you are the eye witness or victim. We want stories of stuff YOU did. CAN I BE ANONYMOUS Yes. We only use first names. But pseudonyms are totally allowed upon request. WHO’S MAKING THIS? The series is made for TRAX, a new podcast network aimed at tweens from PRX (The Moth, TED Talks Daily, Mortified) with support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (yep, the Sesame Street people). It’s produced by Mortified Media (getmortified.com), a global storytelling brand that celebrates hilariously awkward childhood memories for seventeen years via podcasts, theater, TV, books and games.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
If selected, participants will be interviewed (via audio, not video) and required to sign an appearance release. Your story will not be shared in the show without written permission from you or a legal guardian. Due to the sheer volume of stories we receive, we won’t be able to reply to, interview, or feature everyone who submits. Also, many stories simply may not be right for our show (for one reason or another). This does not mean the submission is not interesting or engaging-- merely that it might not match our needs at this time. Thanks for your patience. That said, we read EVERY SINGLE submission.We love reading your stories. We love seeing people express themselves. We are so excited to read more and to share our series with listeners.
