Unlikely Allies

June 4 2024
Season 1
Episode 2

It’s time to meet our final two storytellers, Mark Mariano and Naeun Kim. This week they go head-to-head on the theme Unlikely Allies.

Mark grew up as a member of the Mormon church. But in his early teen years he left it all behind – because he felt that his sexuality and his spirituality could not co-exist. In this story, he explores that divide, and whether it needs to be there.

And Naeun investigates the name “Karen”, which has become synonymous with a demanding, entitled white woman with a compulsive tendency to ask for the manager. But perhaps there is an inner Karen in all of us, and how do we use it for good?
