The Mortified Sessions is an American documentary talk show on the Sundance cable television channel, created by David Nadelberg and Neil Katcher and hosted by Nadelberg. The series, which premiered in December 2011, features interviews with one or more artists and influencers each episode, showing photos and artifacts from their childhood.

The interview series is as an offshoot of Mortified, a storytelling project Nadelberg and Katcher run wherein adults share excerpts of their childhood writing and art with total strangers. Mortified exists as stage show that runs worldwide, a series of books, animated shorts, web content, film, appearances on public radio's This American Life, and a film, Mortified Nation.[1]
