The Odyssey Storytelling Podcast

Jan 6, 2018

Of course, if any episode of this podcast had to come out a day late due to technical difficulties, it had to be a story from the Awkward show! Mel Blumenthal, in her own words, should never be allowed to speak due to her familiarity with the taste of her own foot, and in April 2017, she took the Odyssey stage to explain why. From Mel's Odyssey bio:

Mel Blumenthal is on the executive board of FST! Female Storytellers and is launching pilot programs to bring storytelling into the public school system to empower the next generation of tellers of tales. She is a retired professional ballroom dancer who still enjoys a good milonga and loves to salsa and bachata until unreasonable hours of the evening. She is the Vice President of the Advocacy Council for the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies at the University of Arizona. The other cape she wears during the day is as a retirement consultant and community finance educator specializing in financial education and financial planning for women. Likes: Boozy cereal and bathrobes. Dislikes: Right wing politics and skinny jeans.

This episode was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at The Screening Room on April 6th, 2017, and curated by Roscoe Mutz. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit
