The Storytelling Show

The Storytelling Show is women’s storytelling in all its variations: novels, short stories, mythology, and people with experiences they want to give voice to. We acknowledge a broad, inclusive definition of the term “woman.”

Tonight on The Storytelling Show, I chatted with my smart, warm and adorable friend Christina Rzepa about a wide variety of topics, from sexual health and safety for sex workers in Vancouver (Christina works for the BC Centre of Excellence in HIV/AIDS) to Rzepa’s role as a fixture in the Vancouver music scene (she plays cello for several bands and has recorded on over fifty studio albums!) Our conversation is delightful. Listen in!

On The Storytelling Show, novelist Sigal Samuel and I chatted about her debut novel THE MYSTICS OF MILE END which sets ancient Jewish mysticism in modern-day Montreal.

Cynara Geissler wears many hats and cat dresses. We talked about youth culture in the upcoming Poetry is Dead magazine, the evolution of body acceptance, and balancing anger and humour on her fantastic podcast Fatties on Ice. Cynara reads a poem, swears once and laughs often. She defends the selfie. Do yourself a favour and listen!
