Today’s episode is a little change of pace. But it’s my podcast and I can do what I want to… so what I wanted to do this week was share a story I told at a storytelling show a couple months ago. What’s a storytelling show? Well have you heard of The Moth? The Moth in an organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling - that is, real people getting up in front of real audiences on a real stage with a real microphone telling real stories from their real, everyday lives. It’s pretty cool. So I didn’t perform this story at a Moth show but the next best thing - a storytelling show called Speak Up in Connecticut in which my daddy dearest also performed!!! Awwwww how presh?! You might’ve heard me mention that I was going to be taking a stab at storytelling in episode 77 of this podcast with Simi Botic (whose book is chalk full of amazing stories by the way) and this story about my adorably doggie Tommy negatively benefiting from my healthy habits is that stab! The theme of the storytelling show I told it at was “Close Calls.” Ohhhhh, ahhhhh…..I hope you enjoy!
