On a Night that Changed My Life

It was late Friday night when the audience filtered through doors to the chapel at Lewis & Clark College and  the zoom waiting room was filling up just as quickly.

Storytelling Series the Interstitium Gives Health Care Professionals a Place to Vent—And Invites the Public to Listen

Ben Colburn knows a storytelling event geared toward the medical profession can easily get gory.

The Interstitium: I have a gift for you

The space is Portland-hip: Cup & Bar serves artisan coffee and avocado toast, and we crowd together on artfully rough-hewn wooden benches. The audience is warm: supportive, attentive and intimate, 50-people strong and the show is standing room only. The stories told at the mic are real.
