About the show:
For as long as I can remember, I've been afraid. Afraid of pretty much everything. A lot of my fears were wildly irrational. Examples: I thought I was going to die in the Electric Chair, thought I was going to stick my head in a tornado siren and lose my hearing. These are true, and only the tip of the iceberg. It was a terribly lonely feeling as a kid and I believe it helped inform my idea and understanding of empathy. I know that a lot of people deal with irrational fears at one time or another in life, and I believe this show is, among other things, a reminder that we are not alone.
About the Author: Kevin Crispin
Kevin Crispin was born in central Illinois and has since resided all over the place, both central and not, including West Virginia, India, Massachusetts, the Philippines, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Chicago, where he currently resides. He lives near Lake Michigan--across the street, in fact--and he is petitioning to get it rebranded as an ocean. He knows that's not how it works, but he has to have something to do with his weeknights. He is endlessly fascinated by the way people behave towards themselves, and each other. As you read this, he's probably thinking about the Beatles.
