I Live Here 2018: Homes and the stories they hold

On July 10, Tim and Kameel hosted We Live Here's annual "I Live Here" storytelling experience. This summer's show was hosted in conjunction with Second Tuesdays, a community storytelling collective. In honor of We Live Here's fourth season, which explores the intersection of race, class and housing in one of the nation's most segregated regions, the show's theme was "Homes and the Stories They Hold."

Hear stories from locals who participated:

Chiffontae, "TGIF"

"My mother is not Danny Tanner."

Stephen, "Percy's Grandson"

"I'd come home to a place I'd never been to."

Trieste, "Hellacious"

"Even hell sometimes is a hell that you know."

Mariah, "Paneled Walls. Carpeted Hardwood. Plastic-Covered Furniture."

"The American Dream... that dream has eluded me."

Rob, "The F Word"

"Sometimes you have to take steps to become your own superhero."

Alona served as We Live Here's associate producer in 2018.
Kameel Stanley co-hosted and co-produced the We Live Here podcast—covering race, class, power, and poverty in the St. Louis Region—from 2015 to 2018.
Tim Lloyd was a founding host of We Live Here from 2015 to 2018 and was the Senior Producer of On Demand and Content Partnerships until Spring of 2020.
