Cam Juarez returns to the Odyssey Storytelling Podcast, with his December 2019 story about the concept of "chilling," or "being/staying chill," particularly when life is throwing you weird curveballs and doctors and nurses are glancing warily between you and the tests they've just performed on you with ominously confused looks on their faces. From Cam's Odyssey bio:
Cam Juárez was born to migrant farm worker parents in Yuma, Arizona. Cam holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the UofA in Mexican American Studies, Political Sciences, and Urban Planning. His engagement in the community includes being a founding member of the Arizona César E. Chávez Holiday Coalition and a TUSD Governing Board member (2013- 2017). Cam joined the National Park Service in January 2016, and serves as the Community Engagement & Outreach Director for Saguaro National Park. Cam and his wife, Montserrat have a 10 year old son, Julián who is a 5th grader in TUSD.
This story was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at Sea of Glass Center for the Arts in Tucson, AZ, on December 5th, 2019, and was curated by Joe Silins. It was originally released on December 27th, 2019, as part of the episode December 2019: Chill. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit www.odysseystorytelling.com.
