Episode 24 – In Transit (Part 2)

We give our storytellers a new, evocative theme for each No, YOU Tell It! and ask them to come into our into our initial story meeting with a first draft inspired by that theme, allowing wide space for interpretation.

For our “In Transit” show, Colby Black and Brian Hutchinson brought in distinct, yet perfectly parallel, stories of their love affairs with cars.

Meet Erica, a souped-up temptress who lured Brian to spend his scholarship money on her. And, in the days before GPS, it wasn’t easy to find his way home. Read by Colby Black, here is Brian Hutchinson’s story, “One car: $2500.”

Switching it up, a young person leaps to conclusions in what should be a carefree setting, but all is not as it seems… Molly has just returned to New York from a year living and working in Mexico, which you can read about in her blog at MuchasDonas.wordpress.com.

But before you do, give a listen as Rebecca Hart performs “SeeyouinthemorningIloveyougoodnight” by Molly Touger.
