Operation Babylift

18Apr

We are back with another episode that is really different and interesting. It recalls the ending days of the Vietnam war and the operation that was undertaken to move thousands of orphans out of the country as the North Vietnamese closed in on Saigon. We talk with Albert Monroe who was an Ar Force load master on one of the planes used to move approx. 130,000 people during the end of the US involvement in the war. Al's plane ferried hundreds of kids out of Vietnam over 3 flights and toward a better life. He has logged over 10,000 flight hours in different aircraft and flew missions in and out of Vietnam and around the world during his long military career.  Al's personal stories of what happened during this time in history, and throughout his career is not to be missed. We thank him for his service, and willingness to talk about his experiences of what it was like to be on the ground and in the air during what was clearly a chaotic time, as well as other missions he was involved in. 

On the 30th anniversary of Operation Babylift, we give thanks to the brave men and women who made this humanitarian event happen, and say a prayer for those who died in carrying out these flights.

The story behind the stories.

Gorilla Girl

7Mar

We are back with the first episode of what we are calling Season 3. We know you missed us, as we have you all. 

Tonight's episode is with the cast and director of Cat's play titled "Gorilla Girl", about an online romance, and the repercussions of the things we tell people about ourselves might be. Its an interesting episode with the director and cast's take on playing the characters, who the real villain is, and what the hope is that the audience will take away from the play. 

For those of you who weren't able to attend the Dramatist's Guild play performance Zoom event, Cat has agreed to make the play available to those who would like to read it. Please contact her at iwriteplays@outlook.com and she will get it to you. 

(Note: This is a long episode, at just over 2 hours, and there were some odd noises in the first part, that I couldn't remove without sacrificing dialogue. It is the product of having 4 people remotely connected in different ways so that I could record everyone.)
