  The Show

We are all storytellers. 

Once Upon A Time was created to celebrate the stories all around us. We watch movies, we consume Internet content, we read, and we talk to people. How could we communicate without stories? And who says you need to be a pro to share a good yarn?

Hosted by Talia Smith, we invite friends and folks from all over to share their favorite stories. Be it a myth, folk tale, modern novel, streamed series, or even the story of a person, every time-tested tale has an audience.

What story will you tell?
