Description

Our September 8 show will feature stories from Heather B. Armstrong, Jolyn Metro, Michael Scott Henrikson, and Lauren Bade.

Heather B. Armstrong is a speaker, a New York Times Best Seller, a brand consultant, and both a Trivial Pursuit answer and a question on Jeopardy!Heather B. Armstrong is widely acknowledged to be the most popular “mommy blogger" in the world. Her website dooce.com has several times been hailed as one of Time Magazine's Most Essential Blogs and Forbes Magazine's top 100 websites for women. She has more than 1.5 million followers o n Twitter and was once named by Forbes Magazine as one of the 30 most influential women in media. Heather is a pioneer in the world of online advertising. In the 17 years that she has been shaping the internet writing community, she’s worked to create targeted content for numerous global brands - including Ford, Nintendo, and Clorox– and written a New York Times Best Seller, “It Sucked and then I Cried: How I Had a Baby, a Breakdown, and a Much Needed Margarita.”

Jolyn Metro is best known for her work as co-creator and former co-host of the Strangerville Podcast. She recently left the podcast in order to give graduate school her full attention and to pursue other endeavors. At least that’s the story they want you to believe. Despite creative differences with an unnamed party, Jolyn has decided, for the better good, to soldier on as a producer of Strangerville Live. To the general public she says, “You’re welcome.” Jolyn has received numerous awards for her targeted and hilarious pranks pulled on friends and enemies throughout the years. Most notably an email scam, multiple false Craigslist listings, and that one involving bees, chicken feathers, and a life-size portrait of Rutherford B. Hayes. Jolyn has spent the last six years teaching kindergarten, or as she likes to think of it “brainwashing the next generation.” These are truly remarkable accomplishments for a high school dropout.

Michael Scott Henriksen has worked as a tanning salon guru, a grocery store garçon, an automobile components gopher, a rug-industry specialist, a recreational vehicle cosmetic engineer and best boy, a teaching assistant for the Writing Program at the University of Utah, an editor at Western Governors University, and an English teacher at Riverton High School. He received his education on the vicious and merciless streets of Cottonwood Heights, Utah, and during his time at the University of Utah, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, a Master of Arts degree in English Literature (emphasizing in British and American Literature), and an enormous collection of human hair. In addition to his professional and academic accomplishments, Michael has a voracious appetite for music, literature, film, art, and collectible single-serving ketchup packets. He also enjoys drawing and writing: he moonlights as a commercial artist and illustrator and he is the author of the unpublished novel Peaked. He lives in Highland Park, a suburb of Salt Lake City, Utah, with his wife, Vanessa; their son, Ari; their daughter, Haddie; and their cat, the Captain.

Lauren Bade is a comedian, storyteller, and student from Longmont, Colorado. She loves to make people laugh with her bizarre experiences and funny voices. When she’s not performing she loves to dance, make waffles, and care for her ever-growing collection of animals (including but not limited to: 2 rats, 4 snails, and a fish). One day Lauren hopes to become a recreational therapist, and use her comedy skills to make people’s days a little brighter. She also hopes to own a cotton candy machine.
