Mark your holiday calendars for this must-see show. We’ll be hearing from newcomers to the Odyssey stage and perennial favorites on wide-ranging and riveting stories. Mind-numbing cold and case of frostbite on the snowy slopes of Mt. Aconcagua. A fond remembrance of a snow-filled childhood. Changes in one man’s body that force him to ‘chill.’ A hair-raising story that promises to bring chills. And much more. So stoke your fire, grab your winter jacket, pour yourself a big mug of nog, and come chill with us in December.
Eb Eberlein has been the host and producer of the Southwestern Trails radio series for about 20 years. He has been a wildland firefighter, a wilderness guide, and a teacher. His experiences with being chill include the extreme weather and physical challenges of remote places where mistakes can become fatal.
Jess Kapp is a geologist, educator, and writer. She teaches geology at the University of Arizona, where she is an associate professor of practice and the director of undergraduate studies in the department of geosciences. She is writing a memoir about how death and geology changed her life and set her on a path of self-discovery in the remote Tibetan wilderness. Her latest project, Plucky Ladies, is a podcast that explores female curiosity, perseverance, and feats of excellence through interviews with women across a variety of disciplines, mostly in STEM fields. You can find the podcast at https://soundcloud.com/pluckyladies , or on iTunes. Jess enjoys running, reading, spending time with her husband and two sons, and volunteering for Odyssey Storytelling.
Miles Schneiderman is a freelance…everything, basically. Having never fully understood the concepts of “getting a job” or “finding a career,” he is happy to accept money from anyone willing to pay him to do the things he does best. As it happens, those things are primarily writing, podcasting, and all the things that come alongside writing and podcasting, like editing, fact-checking, proofreading, and audio production. He has been published in multiple places, including Yes! Magazine (which is impressive because it’s a well-respected journal of social and political solutions) and the science fiction blog Universes of the Mind (which is less impressive because it’s just a blog that he started one time). He is the host and producer of the Odyssey Storytelling Podcast, co-host and producer of the Smash Fiction Podcast and The NXT Wrestling Fan, and co-host of the Unspoiled! Twilight Podcast.
