Broadcast Know-It-All

Ready your ears to get SCHOOLED, folks, ’cause I’m playing Fact Checker on Season 3 of the Tell Me Something I Don’t Know Podcast (starring Freakonomic’s Stephen Dubner)!

First Minneapolis episode, “Three Sheets to the Wind,” can be found HERE, with special guest John Moe. They named they episode after one of my facts! And about all the drunk talk featured in the episode.

Second Minneapolis Episode drops Sunday July 30, with special guest Krista Tippet. There’s a lot of sex talk in that episode.

Storycraft with Kevin Kling, April 25th

Several months ago, I was invited to be part of a three-part workshop with Kevin Kling, alongside about two dozen on the Twin Cities’ most talented writers, performers, comedians, and all-around storytellers. This Wednesday, April 25th, we shall showcase the fruits of our collective labor, presenting a night of storytelling at Minnesota Public Radio’s UBS Forum. Join us. You won’t believe your ears. (But you should.)

Radio Interview: This Time in the Hot Seat

International Women’s Day is coming, and I’ll be interviewed on radio KFAI for the occasion.

The Subject: Women, comedy, and women in comedy.

The Women: writer/comedian Molly Knefel, writer/comedian Emily Schorr Lesnick, comedian/HUGE founder Jill Bernard, and writer/comedian me.

In addition to talking about myself and my views on lady issues, I’ll read two pieces of short fiction: “Dear Mother,” and “On the Subject of My Arrest: An Address to my Fellow Residents of Surrency, GA, July the 25th, 1866.”

UPDATE:  Listen to the interview at KFAI by clicking Listen Now or MP3 Stream next to “Finding the Female Funny.” Molly first, then Emily, and my segment starts at 35:19.


…All Things Considered.

That is, “I managed to perform some of my own stuff on the radio and it came out pretty okay, all things considered.” Also, I had a couple commentaries on Minnesota Public Radio: All Things Considered.

You can listen to the first commentary, about Halloween, etc., right here:

You can read an extended version, here.

My second commentary fell on Thanksgiving, which was appropriate. If you want to know why, read it here.

I guess I’m their Holiday gal. Let’s see what I can rustle up for National “Stay at Home Because You’re Well Day,” tomorrow. Or not.
