Episode 013 - Magdalen Zinky

Meg Zinky, joins Brynn and Stephanie to discuss the appeal of experiential theater, #adulting, horse camp, and avoiding the cringe-factor of call-in radio shows.  Listen for a discussion of tapenade by three people who have never eaten or even seen tapenade! 

Know that we had to cut a 10-minute long discussion of American Girl Dolls and for that, we are deeply sorry.

Bonus Episode - Brynn Martin

For this very special episode we interview our own Brynn Martin about her work and get to know ½ of the SFD hosts. We talk about the elementary school poetry unit that rocked her little world, how she was forever changed by LOTR (though she wasn’t allowed to watch it), and how writing poetry has always helped her work through her personal problems.

Shoutout to our guest co-host for this episode, Erin Elizabeth Smith (@sundresserin, SFD episode 5)!

Extra shoutouts to Mr. Carter, Emilia Phillips, and Barb Martin, who taught, mentored, and birthed Brynn, respectively.
