THE TOWNIES EP. 03: A LONG WAY FROM HOME

ABOUT OUR STORYTELLERS

Anabel is excited to be a storyteller on The Townies Podcast.

LUCKY STRIKES by Anabel Roca Lezra: A dancer and in motion the day she arrived.  Anabel’s words flow like her body moves. With grace, intelligence and an unexpected awkward elegance.

Noah Lashly grew up in Kim Maxwell's writing, performance and storytelling class. Now working on his standup material & several plays in his senior year at Hendrix College, he is beyond excited to have his piece featured on The Townies Podcast.

COMFORT FOOD by Noah Lashly: My big hearted, big dreaming, big brained nephew with a big, warm laugh is a senior at Hendricks College. He loves comic books and stand-up and being right -- all the time.

Before moving to The Bay area, Amanda was a regular in Kim Maxwell's writing, storytelling & performance workshops. She's excited to be a storyteller on this episode of The Townies Podcast.

NO, NOW by Amanda Lezra: Born and raised in Madrid with her cousin Anabel who you heard earlier. Somehow the fates lined up -- so that the direct, pragmatic and infinitely poetic Amanda Lezra ended up here in Ojai, California. Yay fates!

Having only taken Kim Maxwell's class once, Amaury is thrilled that his piece was selected for Episode 3 of The Townies Podcast.

FRENCH BOY by Amaury Saugrain: A skater, an embedded systems engineer, a doting husband to my daugher, Amaury comes to us by way of Paris, France. He likes Cards Against Humanity, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and pasta burritos. Which is exactly what it sounds like.

Musical Interlude by

Jeanette is very excited to be a featured storyteller on The Townies Podcast.

LETTING GO by Jeanette Stampfli: Her Swiss sensibilities wind their way effortlessly through her life as a mom, wife, teacher, student, neighbor, writer, buddhist, adventurer -- friend. Thanks for the loan Burgdorf, Switzerland -- but we aren’t giving her back.

Saul is honored to have two of his stories featured on The Townies Podcast.

HOUSE ON THE CORNER OF THE STREET by Saul Gordillo II: Saul started in my class as a trouble makin’ 9th grade, poet, rapper, genius artist boy -- and we have worked together ever since. Most recently, he was by my side as a dramaturge and assistant director on the Indigenous Voices Project and in my Juvenile Hall class.
