Stories and snippets that we've adored from the week of May 14th, 2018 to May 18, 2018. From our episode "Fast Ones" we're featuring a small personal story from Sam Payne (1:30) along with stories from Rosie Cutrer (3:48) and Alan Hoal (20:13) about memorable pranks they pulled or that were pulled on them in their childhood. You can find more of Rosie and Alan's work at their respective websites: www.rosiecutrer.com and www.thehoalstory.com One of Laura Packer’s hallmarks is to give voice to the voiceless, to highlight those that don’t often make it in traditional stories. In order to hear more of her thoughts on that and a story that illustrates her point be sure to check out the full episode, "Storyteller Spotlight: Laura Packer" or her website www.laurapacker.com, but for now enjoy this small teaser of our conversation here (32:39). We also wanted to highlight the stories The Luckless One by Jenni Cargill Strong (37:35) and Heaven and Hell by Motoko (48:51), which were aired in our episode "Perspective". How you look at something can make all the difference. You can find more of Jenni's work at www.storytree.com.au and more of Motoko's work at motoko.folktales.net
