Episode 19: MORE Ennui

Episode 19: MORE Ennui

November 11, 2020

Ennui: a feeling of listlessness and dissatisfaction arising from a lack of occupation or excitement.

This week we tackle a hard topic - how the lack of performances and safe means to get together has affected our mental health.

We hope that hearing our conversation will help you feel less alone if you've also been struggling during this time.

This conversation moves from being heavy to laughter and back again, so if you're not in a good place to listen, save it and come back later.

Episode 16: MORE Rogues & Ruffians

October 21, 2020

This week we're talking about one of our favorite festivals to visit outside of our home fair - the Gathering of Rogues & Ruffians, held in the Dells region of Southern Wisconsin!

The festival is hosted by Shakespeare on the Edge, a small non-profit youth group based out of Green County WI. The main goal at Shakespeare on the Edge is to help kids break out of their shell, help them find friends, and give them a voice which they can use how they would like to use it.

They have set up a Go Fund Me to help Shakespeare on the Edge remain open and present Rogues & Ruffians in 2021
