Hi Everyone,

I hope to see a bunch of you at the show tomorrow. It’s going to be a special night. We have two special guests and a big announcement from me at the end of the show.

One of the guests will be telling a story that got him thrown off stage at The Moth. I can’t imagine what he did to make that happen but I asked him to tell it at FGS so we can see what the big deal was. I love The Moth but I have to see the story that got him 86’d from it. He swears it doesn’t break any of our rules so I’m pretty excited 🙂

The second guest is a regular of ours who has a story that I fell in love with and didn’t want to wait until the right theme came up. So I asked him to close the show with it tomorrow.

Also, I have some exciting news about the show in general that I’ll be sharing.

Most of our regulars know that we get a lot of mental health stories at FGS. The audience has always been incredibly supportive of everyone who walks up to the mic and shares one of those stories. For the last two years, I and some other FGS’ers, have been helping out with the NAMI annual fundraiser called The Brainpower Chronicles that features stories like the ones you hear at our show. Last year, Bill Radke hosted and a number of FGS alumni worked as storytelling coaches. Bill Bernat is producing the show and he’s knocked it out of the park each year he’s done it.
