Doug-Knott-KMS-Townies-Podcast

PAPA'S GOT A BRAND NEW BAG written & performed by Doug Knott: Doug is an old-school spoken word poet from the 1980s punk scene of Los Angeles, where he still feels at home. I am honored and thrilled to have him spinning his poetic yarns in my class.

BODY LOVE TRAIN written & performed by Sierra Hoskinds: One of my daughter’s oldest friends in the whole world, I’ve been lucky enough to know the brilliant, community minded, loyal to the bone Sierra since she was 12 years old. She is a long-haired, poetry-loving, Sociology-degree-toting activist with a big laugh and an even bigger heart.

DEAR RENNIE MARIE written & performed by Ren D’Angelo: Though new to my class, Ren is already a leader amongst their classmates. Wide eyed and infatuated by the work of other people, Ren is a dedicated advocate for self-expression, an endless source of positive reinforcement and class snack-bringer.

NORMAL written & performed by Elaine Unzicker: When she’s not writing, laughing at the wrong time, or pushing herself to overcome personal obstacles, Elaine is designing beautiful metal lace accessories for her small business. For someone who makes chain mail, Elaine is one of the most open, authentic and unguarded people I have ever met.

CHRISTMAS EVE written & performed by Tara Jeffery: This is the third time up to bat on The Townies Podcast for Miss Tara. A singer/songwriter,  registered nurse and pilates instructor extraordinaire -- she may just be the most well-rounded person in all of Ojai.

ELDEST DAUGHTER written & performed by Angelina Martin: Angelina is just about the only person I know who could wear a backwards cap, a batman t-shirt, overalls, and flower socks at the same time and still look like she could mess you up.
