Guest: Lesbian Writer/Director Megan Carney sits and talks with Amy about her history with About Face Theatre and co-founding their youth program. Megan also shares her teaching experience at Virginia Tech during the historic shootings. Her latest play, The Walls, is now running at the Steppenwolf Garage, which explores the lives of women in three different time periods through a woman's struggle to both honor and escape her artist mother's dual legacy of fearless self-expression and psychosis.

Eric: Ladies, ladies, tsk, tsk... Iowa isn't JUST farmers (although there are lots of cute ones...)! Puhleez - Iowans represent the best of the U.S. (IMHO... unbiased, maybe not...) You two are cracking me up! You're so baffled that Iowa shows sophistication while I am reveling in the proof of my long-held belief - sophistication is about being able to see the world beyond yourself and being tolerant of others' perspectives while still holding your own - not just overpriced coffee and quirky European cars! (C'mon, New England, come to Iowa and be enlightened!) Hah hah!!

Amy: are you going to name names Eric???? :)

Eric: Why, me, of course!! :-)
