Since 2011, TMI Project has collected over 2,000 stories. The TMI Project Podcast, launched in 2020, profiles the people who got on stage and shared the stories they were most afraid to tell. The stories behind the secrets. And what happened next.
The TMI Project Podcast features adult content and is geared toward people interested in social justice, human rights, arts, culture, and, most importantly, storytelling. Our audience believes that it’s important to hear from marginalized communities and understand they can’t rely on mainstream media, film, radio, or television to get what they’re looking for. The podcast is free and regardless of topic, always features radically candid true stories from historically underrepresented populations often overlooked by mainstream media.
We believe that through vulnerability human beings connect with one another, and when people share the stories they’re most afraid to tell their vulnerability becomes a superpower. Individually, when we share our most personal stories, the ones we’ve kept hidden from the world, our lives subtly shift and open up in positive ways. Collectively, this shift is seismic. We think we can make the world a kinder, gentler place this way, one story at a time.
Season 1: Tragedy + Time = Comedy
Tragedy is only funny after a significant amount of time. In our debut season, 9 storytellers shared tales that might not have been so funny way-back-when, but that they can laugh at now.
Season 2: Black Stories Matter
Since 2017, TMI Project has provided Black-led true storytelling workshops where Black folks can write about, share, and reflect upon their experiences without having to justify, explain, or defend the truth of their lived experiences. Since its inception, TMI Project’s Black Stories Matter program has created and amplified the stories of nearly 100 black storytellers and reached over 70k audience members. This season of the podcast featured 12 storytellers from the series.

Season Three: Stories for Choice
Stories for Choice uses radically true stories that include the TMI parts we usually keep to ourselves because of fear, shame, stigma, or cultural expectation — to ignite human connection, challenge the status quo, and inspire storytellers and listeners alike to take action for true reproductive justice. Choice is about comprehensive, safe, accessible reproductive healthcare for all who need/want it, to make whatever choice they choose. The stories featured in this season of the podcast highlight the gray areas of an issue that is often talked about in black and white.
