Welcome back to the closet! We’ll be camped out in here until the wind dies down and it’s safe to go outside again. Responsibilities be damned! We’re taking a Yucky Weather Day (it’s like a sick day or a mental health day for when you just don’t want to bother with the weather- it’s great, you should take one too and join us for this terrific episode!)
First up we have the brilliant and prolific Colby Day reading his story, The Boy Who Had No Feelings. We don’t want to give anything away, but this story is about a boy who finds himself lacking in the emotion department. You can find him on his website, http://www.colbyday.com, on Twitter @ColbyDay, and being hilarious with @Sweater_Friends. Colby is a member of the Pipeline Theater Company, where you can frequently see his plays being performed.
Next up we have the lovely and talanted Mara Wilson telling a story of hubris, dance class, and the perils of Physical Education. You might remember Mara from her earlier career as the Cutest Kid in America, during which she appeared in such films as Matilda, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Miracle on 34th Street. Lately Mara’s been focusing her considerable talents and energies on writing and storytelling. You can check her out at marawilsonwritesstuff.com, and on Twitter @MaraWritesStuff and on Facebook.
Also, find out who Jolenta just broke up with (hint, it’s not her boyfriend or her dog), and what activity Erica swears will ensure a long and healthy life.
