Nothing changes the course of your life like the discovery of a fundamental truth. In the case of David Dickerson, that truth was the fact that women -- well, most women, anyway -- actually enjoy having their breasts touched! Astounding! Where that revelation led Dave is a story I'll leave to him, though anyone who attended the "Detours" show in August 2015 already knows the hilarious answer.
From David's Odyssey bio:
Recently returned Tucson native David Ellis Dickerson is an author, storyteller, and former greeting card writer who is a regular contributor to public radio's "This American Life," where he usually tells stories about his fundamentalist Christian upbringing. As the host of the YouTube channel "Greeting Card Emergency," he has also become the unofficial greeting card laureate of public radio, with interviews on Morning Edition, Weekend Edition, Talk of the Nation, Studio 360 and other shows. His greeting card memoir, "House of Cards," was published by Riverhead in 2009. A volunteer docent at the U of A Poetry Center, David currently writes, teaches, and looks under sofa cushions for spare change.
This episode was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at The Screening Room in Tucson, AZ, on August 6th, 2015, and was curated by Carolyn Langford Hussein Fort. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit www.odysseystorytelling.com
