StitchCast Studio

StitchCast Studio

StitchCast Studio is a podcast produced by Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective in Saint Louis, Missouri. It’s a show about the streets, gun violence, and finding solutions to issues that are coming at our youth hard. The voices of youth of color are important to hear at this critical time. StitchCast Studio creates a series of leveled conversations about issues that concern youth related to health, safety and violence. This is the place to come to hear real conversations about what’s on the minds of 16-24 year old St. Louis youth and catch some powerful new ideas for solutions. Programs include original spoken word and music produced by Saint Louis Story Stitchers. In 2021/22, Saint Louis Story Stitchers is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. On the web at arts dot gov. Additional support for StitchCast Studio Season III and Story Stitchers youth programs was provided by the Spirit of St. Louis Women’s Fund, The Lewis Prize for Music Accelerator Award, City of St. Louis Youth at Risk Crime Prevention grant of 2021, and March For Our Lives Aid & Alliance. StitchCast Studio Season II in 2021 was sponsored by the the City of St. Louis’ Youth at Risk Crime Prevention Grant of 2020, Spirit of St. Louis Women’s Fund’s three year grant 2020-22, The Lewis Prize for Music Covid Relief grant, Arts and Education Council PNC Grant, and Lush Corporation’s The Charity Pot.

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
