~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To hear and see Michael perform, check out this video of his Story Slam MN semi-final piece “Lost.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Michael recorded stories for the KFAI radio series FreshWords You can listen to them at the links below. You will get the entire morning show (the stories are 5 minutes or so mixed in).

“Ghost on Hennepin” is introduced and starts at 01:09:44.

“Where’s George” is introduced and starts at 01:13:51.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ghost on Hennepin This is Michael’s runner-up performance at the 2011 Tellebration! Story Slam. The audio can be dicey at times because he moves around the stage quite a bit, which meant straying from the microphone. On stage that wasn’t a problem; Michael can project his voice out to the audience. In a recording, it’s a little more problematic.

Also, true story.
