A ‘Mortified’ Tale Just in Time for Halloween

On the “Mortified” podcast, brave adults read aloud the most embarrassing moments from their childhood journals. The show’s inspired a new book — a do-it-yourself journal for adults called “My Mortified Life.”

So, for Halloween, we wanted to share this favorite from the show. It’s performed by Sarah Hoops who — in middle school — desperately wanted to be a vampire. In the audio above, she is reading 1990s entries from her seventh grade diary… on-stage in Portland.
