One of storyteller Laura Packer's hallmarks is to give voice to the voiceless -- to honor those that don’t often play the hero roles in traditional tales. In this episode, we catch up with Laura after a terrific performance at The Celtic Knot pub and performance space in Evanston, Illinois. Laura played to an enthusiastic audience that appreciated her spin on folk and fairy tales, as well as her built-from-the-ground up fictional stories filled with poetry and empathy. On today's episode, you'll hear a couple of Laura's stories, recorded that night in Illinois, as well as a great conversation with the storyteller herself.
