    The Bear on KCRW Berlin: Stories of self-creation Dina Elsayed

These true, personal stories were recorded live at The Bear on February 15 at Meeet Pavilion in Mitte. The theme of the evening was handmade: stories of self-creation.

The storytellers featured in this episode are Ben McGuire, J. Ryan, Galina Fedulova, and Mike Hurst. German singer-songwriter Erik Burmeister performed live. Our show’s theme is “I Need Love,” remixed by D.J. Spector.

The Bear was created by Dyane Neiman and inspired by The Moth. If you would like to tell a story or attend the next Bear storytelling evening, check out our show page.
