Hello, and welcome to episode 2 of Tell Me a Story, where we take poems, essays, and short stories from The Chillfiltr Review and we bring them to you, audiobook style. Most of our readings are done by our team of talented voice over artists, and every now and then I will read one myself. I'm your host, Krister Axel.

Today, our theme is hardship and heroism. How do we know who the heroes are in our own lives? And what, exactly, is heroism? What, does it even look like? We will discuss what it means to be a figure of authority, and how we earn the privilege of being looked up to.

Featuring work by Alan Cohen, Sofia Bening, and David Rogers.
