Elan Morgan on CBC's DNTO

On October 7th, I did CBC's DNTO with Sook-Yin Lee "Live in Saskatoon: Stuff I Never Told My Parents". If you've ever been a fan of somebody for years and years, a fan of the national public radio and television broadcaster they work for, and a long-time subscriber to the podcast, and then if you were asked to take part as a storyteller in one of their live shows and later heard yourself on that podcast with that famous somebody, you might know what a surreal experience I just had.

I will be offering a course soon called "How to Look High Next to Famous People".

I will be offering a course soon called "How to Look High Next to Famous People".

I told a very difficult story to hundreds of people in person at the Broadway Theatre, and to thousands of people by extension over the radio, and I told it in front of both my parents and parents-in-law and a handful of old friends, and I'm so glad I did. It was an honour to work with Kaj Hasselriis and Sara Tate to refine my story before the show, and it was an honour to share the stage with Sook-Yin Lee and my fellow storytellers, Albert Jame and Ernie Louttit. There was a kindness and generosity strung throughout the entire experience that made it possible for me to get up there. Go, team!

I also think you should subscribe to the DNTO with Sook-Yin Lee podcast, because I have for ages, and it's always a great listen:

To everyone who was present at the show or listened through the radio, thank you. I still can't believe I get to link to it all on the CBC website like it's a real thing that actually happened.

Go, CBC!
