Host Ed Goldberg interviews local author Jill Kelly, whose memoir of alcoholism and recovery is called Sober Truths: the Making of an Honest Woman. Kelly's demons did not go quietly when she put the bottle down. Loneliness, anxiety, distrust of others-they were all still there. This memoir tells how she has learned to be with those demons and not drink, to let go of the jealous dramas of the past and embrace a new life of peace. Along the way, Kelly reinvents herself, becoming a visual artist, starting a successful business, and developing deep friendships and a satisfying spiritual life.
Angela Fair performed in a group and enjoyed similar experiences both on her high school state championship dance team, and as an original member of musical performance art barn burners House of Cunt.

She explores flawed characters that satirize the human experience out of a macabre need to connect and entertain.
