Join me as I host this show while refusing to come to terms with the fact that summer is over. We're gonna get to Wally World if it kills us.

Blaise Allysen Kearsley's How I Learned series features writers, storytellers, comics, and other raconteurs holding forth on lessons learned, unlearned, relearned or in progress. The How I Learned Series happens once a month, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you will have the best night of your life on those nights, repeatedly.
