Two more guests for That’s What She Said have been confirmed. I’m waiting for their official bios and such, but I’ll let you in on the news now!
Poet Thadra Sheridan! Thadra and I go way back – we went to our first National Poetry Slam together in Seattle back in 2001, and her and I co-produced a show called Lingo at First Avenue, and Gen-Estro at a club called Sursumcorda in downtown Minneapolis. She’s an amazing writer, performer, server of coctails and performance coach. Here’s a link to a poem and audio recording.
Musician Kerry Alexander! Kerry is all sorts of awesome, and you can listen to her beautiful songs here.
Oh, and I THINK my beat boxing coach might make a special appearance at the show – stay tuned for more on that!

I’m super stoked to announce that my variety show, That’s What She Said is kicking off again in Minneapolis. You all can blame the amazing and talented Lauren Zuniga. Lauren has a new book that just came out on Write Bloody Press, and she wanted to come perform for us, but her tour limited her available dates. Problem: No Show. Solution: Create a Show.
I am moving back to Minneapolis on July 1. I’ve been gone for close to 2 years, and boy, have I missed you…all of you! I have been working on new poems, and can’t wait to share them with the Bryant Lake Bowl audience.
Now, some of you may know, Lauren was recently transformed from poet to celebrity by moveon.org – they grabbed her poem, To the Oklahoma Lawmakers, on you tube and it went viral! Lauren also placed in the top 5 at this year’s Women of the World Poetry Slam, kicking my butt for sure. Her poems explore the wild terrain of queer, feminist, collective living in the conservative state of Oklahoma.
So be sure to tell your friends, and reserve your tickets early (you save $3 if you reserve tickets ahead of time!).
