EPISODE #2 | Crystal, Sarah & Susan’s Furry, Four-Legged Misadventures

Pronouns: Crystal (she/her), Sarah (she/her), Susan (she/her)

In this pet-themed episode, three storytellers share misadventurous tales that celebrate the unique connection between animals and the crazy human caretakers who love them: Crystal has an epic cat battle, Sarah forms an unbreakable bond with a disabled dog, and Susan goes on a pet rescue mission.

These stories were originally presented on February 18th, 2016 at BSP in Kingston, NY.

– Susan
