Ep31 Benjamin Speed - Love And A Lie

This week's story is about love. But the storyteller isn't French or one of those European romantics… no he's a true romantic, he's Australian! So here's newcomer Ben Speed with his story about a big romantic lie that he's going to tell.

Benjamin Speed is a composer and dreamer, whose greatest goal is to have music he's made shot out inside a spaceship as an example of artistic human endeavour for interstellar civilisations to discover. Besides music and film, he's obsessed with soccer, bicycles, watermelon, ginger and tea. And I laughing, especially at himself, as regularly as possible. http://www.benjaminspeed.com/

Ep 30. Catherine Zukowski - Circus At Thanksgiving

 

It's Thanksgiving this week in the US and we've heard it can be a tricky time for families. So for this week we have Catherine Zukowski with a story that we hope will help with your Thanksgiving perspective. 

Bio: Catherine Zukowski is a transplant from Chicago and with her husband has made downtown Los Angeles her home for over 8 years . A Legal Secretary for 22 years, she is now is an Office Manager for a large real estate development company responsible for a lot of the gentrification of downtown LA and creating affordable housing communities in the surrounding area. Catherine has been making jewelry for almost 20 years, and a practicing clairvoyant energy reader for a decade. Lynn's storytelling class is very much like an energy reading. She helps you strip away the story/energy that isn't yours and gets you to your core truths. It's been a brilliant and difficult process. Highly Recommended. Thank you, Lynn.
