As summer winds down we think about the start of school. And although school, this year, will look different, some things never change: like productions of Romeo and Juliet run amok or spring band trips that turn into scenes of a crime or open mic nights that don’t end as disastrously as feared. Tune in and slide back down memory lane as our storytellers this month share their Back to School stories.

What do you get when you reunite three friends after seven years of being apart and toss in the host’s mother? Lots of nostalgia and an airing of grievances How else would you know that it was true friendship?
Even though we’re locked down, we can still open up about summer days gone by. Our fearless host’s mom even stops by! Learn about David’s storied swimming career! Hear about Adam’s summer romance he can’t forget! Indulge Adam and David’s nostalgic ramblings about a show they did five years ago in Vermont! Stay safe and be well.
We all know we need to wash our hands these days, but we shouldn’t forget that we also need to wash our consciences from time to time. You listener shall play confessor to our sinful storytellers! Be warned! These are depraved tales of dead goldfish, onerous kennel duties, and impostor basketball players! You’ve been warned!

From having baby carrots lodged in their throats to being called “Barf” by their wrestling coach to playing pick-up basketball with a man decades older than they—our performers have experienced “luck” in all her wild and wooly permutations. And now you’ll be the lucky ones to hear their stories.
