Hi Everyone,

I hope to see a bunch of you at the show this Thursday. We have a nice combination of regulars and first-time storytellers lined up. I’ll send out the Zoom registration link Wednesday afternoon. If you don’t get that email by 5pm that day write me and I’ll send you another one.

In the meantime, I want to share a cool thing I got to do last year on a podcast called, My Ten Songs. The host, Megan Hanna, asked me for ten songs that shaped my life and the stories behind them. I loved Megan’s idea so much I decided to do something similar with the folks I work with. Last week, I started recording co-worker’s 2-3 minute stories about songs that mean something to them. When I get ten together I’m going to make a digital mixtape for everyone. I’ve already heard some great stories and learned a lot about the people I work with. 

I would love to hear if any of you do this for friends, family, coworkers, etc. I’m doing my recording over Zoom so you wouldn’t have to show up at anyone’s house with a microphone.

Here’s the original episode I was on that inspired me:

Here’s the podcast page if you’d like to listen to other episodes:

See you next Thursday!

Write if you have any questions.
