The Odyssey Storytelling Podcast

Apr 13, 2019

Nature illustrator Beth Surdut has as many stories in her head as she's had homes in her life, and with a life like hers, that's quite a lot! But of all her numerous experiences, perhaps none was as challenging as that most perilous of enterprises -- house hunting in Hawai'i. At the "Home" show in 2015, the Odyssey crowd joined Beth on a strange journey from the death of a beloved friend to the liberal sex lives of stoners, and finally, of course, to Tucson.

From Beth's Odyssey bio:

You can hear and see nature illustrator Beth Surdut on 89.1 Arizona Spotlight’s web page, encouraging listeners to pay attention to the critters that crawl, fly and skitter around us. Her illustrated work, Listening to Raven, won the 2013 Tucson Festival of Books Literary Award for Non-Fiction. Elements of her raven clan have appeared in Orion Magazine, flown across the digitally looped Art Billboard Project in Albany, New York and roosted at the New York State Museum.

This episode was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at The Screening Room in Tucson, AZ, on October 1st, 2015, and was curated by Jen Nowicki Clark. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit
