Vanessa Shields is a writer, poet, show runner, and community organizer from just over the border in Canada. Dame just appeared at her Mouth Piece Storytelling show in Windsor, so she invited Vanessa to Detroit for a talk. They talk practice vaginas, storytelling, and a frightening TEDx experience.
Dame talks with Matt Trombley & Jamie Quartuccio about their adventurous lives. Both have decided to bypass the expected brick and mortar home life, and instead hit the road living in their customized van. They discuss IKEA, argue about who came up with the idea, and discuss vans with shag carpet.
Dame's brain is thinking about storytelling, so she talks with fellow Detroiter & storyteller, Shannon Cason. They talk about how they got started in storytelling, about their favorite music, and how Detroit affected them both.
