With host Geoff Herbach, produced by Seth Wells
To begin airing on KMSU in February

Tales From the Poor House is a prompt-driven, story and music show from southern Minnesota.  Each episode will include three or four writers telling stories based on a common prompt, such as: “This is what the barber confessed” (a recent example).  Each episode will include original music based on the same prompt.  The theme will be introduced by Geoff.  The writers will be interviewed briefly.  The music will wind between the story pieces.  Tune in to hear talented writers reading entertaining and funny pieces, many of them local writers and a few from beyond Minnesota as well. Check us out on Facebook!
