NEW SPIN-OFF! Now at a lower latitude! Our first official episode of Your Stories South was recorded on Friday, October 11, 2019 at St. Nicholas Brewery in Du Quoin, IL.  This was an incredibly fun night and we had some great talents to help us set it off right.  Our theme was "South!" (please clap) in reference to life here on the southern end of Illinois.  There was a fair amount of room noise during the recording but our storytellers and musicians did excellent all the same.
