I enjoy meeting other writers and readers and horse lovers. If you hit that particular trifecta, we are paisan. If not, that’s okay. You can tell me what stories you like to watch or read. We’ll still have a grand time chatting. Everyone loves a good story. You can tell me your favorites.

Also, very important: this schedule is subject to change.
