EIn a set of circumstances where male folly played out from the stage into real life, after our first ladies-only show last November, my producer, Brian, and I, managed to lose the sound file containing the recording of the show.It was an epic show, and so, as a way to rectify the shitty situation, we reached out to all the ladies in that lineup and asked if they’d be comfortable having a one-on-one conversation, with me, Joe Tower, about their story, female folly, and how stories of folly play parts in their lives overall.Now, one bonus episode per month will be a one-on-one conversation with someone who’s done our show – perhaps a storyteller that performed before we started recording the shows; perhaps a performer who didn’t feel comfortable with their story ending up on the podcast; friends of the show, enemies of the show; the performers, actors, writers, storytellers, comedians, and artists of every medium who have made the show what it is.But, ladies first. And so, for you...
