The Odyssey Storytelling Podcast

Nov 17, 2019

Due to unexpected life complications (i.e. the producer's wife is nine months pregnant and we keep thinking she might be going into labor) this episode is a couple of days late, and for that, we ask your forgiveness. Appropriately, this week's offering comes from the September 2016 Forgiveness/Grudges show, and features a really, really excellent story from Robert Ronquillo, who turns a hostile co-worker into a kindred spirit with a simple act of compassion and apology. From Robert's Odyssey bio:

Robert Ronquillo is a single 50-year-old man fresh from a successful colonoscopy who broke his heel bone seeking the title of village idiot. He has lived in Tucson since 1995, holding jobs ranging from cabdriver to case manager to marketing and sales which he currently does for a roofing company. His burning desires include being a strip club DJ, telling a good joke at the world famous Improv and tour guide at a petting zoo. His motto is do the next right thing or do the next thing right. His bucket list includes visiting all cities with a zip code ending in 66 and finding out what goes into a Nathans hot dog.

This episode was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at The Screening Room in Tucson, AZ, on September 1st, 2016, and was curated by Molly McCloy. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit
