Odyssey Storytelling Needs Voices for June's 'Taboo' Show

I did Odyssey Storytelling in April and, trust me, it is not as terrifying as it sounds. I mean, right before they call your name, your blood pressure might drop down, way down, but once you are on stage, it is dark enough to make you think you're just chatting with your friends. It also helps to have a couple of drinks beforehand.

(My friend Tony Panigua, who is a TV producer in my old stomping grounds, Arizona Public Media, kinda forced me to do it, but I'm happy to have gotten that phobia of public speaking out of the way.)

The theme for that month was rules, so I shared a few unwritten/made up rules from my weird, little country Guatemala.

Anyway, the Odyssey friends need storytellers for next month's show: Taboo. 

If you have been thinking about participating, this is a fun topic and I am kind of envious. I will be in Guatemala those days, otherwise I would sign up. I have one or two offensive stories in mind.

From the Odyssey folks:
We know that one of you out there has a story about something that NO ONE SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT! Sex. Religion. Death. Money. Politics. If you have a story to tell, contact Penelope@odysseystorytelling.com or Adam@odysseystorytelling.com

And we hope to see you all at this provocative show! 
Don't worry, you get to rehearse a week before the show and hear good insight from fellow storytellers.

Odyssey happens on June 4 at The Screening Room.

Come on, scratch this off your bucket list.
