Stories from the Stage

S5 E9 | PREVIEW

Off the Press | Promo

The news cycle spins faster than ever, and the flow of stories never seems to end. Yet we rarely learn the story behind the story. A young Joe gets a chance to meet the Pope; Rinaz immigrates to the US from Syria on Christmas Eve; and Shannon jumps hurdles in her quest to become a journalist. Three storytellers, three interpretations of OFF THE PRESS, hosted by Wes Hazard.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- [Narrator] Next time on Stories From The Stage,

Off the Press.

- Finally, about 45 minutes past the time

when he should have been there,

we heard a buzz in the crowd.

People were cheering, people were yelling.

The Pope was coming.

- The officer at the airport told me,

"Are these your kids?"

So I told him, "Do you think I will fly for 14 hours

with two kids that aren't mine?"

- And here I am now, having this like, existential crisis

in the soap aisle,

wondering what the hell I was doing with my life.

(gentle music)
