An ongoing audio survey of individuals who have experienced transcendence and/or power of the will. No story will be considered too troubled, no atmosphere too strange.

Needed: tales from the underground, the underdog, the outlaw, and the outcast. Genuine characters of all kinds welcome.

Everything Is Stories explores unconventional narratives of the past and present to preserve the eccentric, the authentic, and the personal.

Produced by Mike Martinez and Tyler Wray.

030 After Innocence
A story of misplaced justice and the perils of innocence. Convicted and sentenced to 12 years in prison for aggravated sexual assault of a child, Greg Torti has spent the the last two decades in the shadow of a system that places a high priority on banishing sex offenders even after their release.  Living in rural Texas with children of his own now, Torti would be the first to tell you he agrees with the system. Yet still, after years behind bars and now subject to the process a sex offender must go through each year, bitterness and anger remain after what he feels was no more than a vindictive accusation. In this story Greg speaks on his upbringing in Irving, attempts on his life throughout his prison sentence, and the complexities of innocence. Music courtesy of Mike Etten, Greg Fox, and Justin Frye of PC Worship. Produced by Gautam Srikishan, Tyler Wray, and Mike Martinez.
029 No Duties Without Rights
A story of language, communism, and 9/11. As a young man growing up in the Dominican Republic, Miguel Vargas-Caba had an early interest in foreign language.  With minimal resources in a country wrapped up in political turmoil and an eventual civil war, Cabas began writing to people overseas to request books and stamps for his collection.  After teaching himself various languages from Latin to Russian, it was ultimately his curiosity in the latter that would land him in the United States after his mother feared for his life amongst an anti-communist culture. After adjusting to life in the U.S., Vargas-Caba would eventually earn his green card and contribute to the work force for the next 30 years in the computer industry.  In the days following the attacks on 9/11 he would put his love of language to the test.

A story of a runaway, sexual identity, and survival in the wake of loss.

After running a successful business and ultimately losing a loved one to the AIDS epidemic, he struggles with addiction in the rough and tumble 1980s East Village.  From there we follow as he drives his taxi cab through a rapidly changing landscape, watching old haunts and the character of the city he once knew slowly disappear.
