Welcome to the first iteration of the second generation of The Downtown Writers Jam Podcast with Brad King. In this episode, we sat down with Los Angeles-based storyteller Les Kurkendaal, who was in town performing “Terror on the High Seas” as the Indy Fringe Festival. But this conversation was really about how Les found his voice as a writer despite the pushback he’s gotten from the more traditional theater and acting world. And how his writing has evolved from comedy to theater to storytelling.
