GBA 324 Edd Hedges by Getting Better Acquainted published on 2018-02-07T10:37:40Z In GBA 324 we get better acquainted with Edd Hedges. He talks about stand up comedy and storytelling, accepting that you are going to make mistakes and get things wrong, different types of silence and the appeal of going off into the woods to write sad songs. We talk about and around his true story show Wonderland, compare notes on doing storytelling shows about toxic masculinity (and the life experiences that inspired them) and mention Sofie Hagen a lot.
