Ep. 46 – Allison Rose – Kansas
Welcome to another one of Schooling Noah’s podcasts! This week, we are talking to our dear friend, Allison Rose. Initially, this episode was going to focus on therapy, a topic Allison is well informed about and to which Aaron and Noah have had a lot of experience. As it so happens, that wasn’t that great. What was great was Allison’s physical location. Amidst all of the craziness of Covid and quarantine, Allison took a sabbatical in her childhood home in central Kansas.
Allison is on location to talk about the serenity and peace of big-sky country. Small-town Kansas has a lot to offer. For one, her closest neighbor is only three miles away. Town is five. What was once a fearful experience of isolation as a kid is now a coveted chance at solitude and reflection.
In addition to a tour of the acreage, Allison walks through county living with a couple of city boys. She talks about her prairie home (built 1917) and the tornado shelter and the brown recluses; the one wolf-walking Filipino who was hiding out in town; the cafe that won’t shut down; and how her dad thinks that no matter how crazy people are there, the world doesn’t know they exist.
Allison resides in Denver. She is a co-producer and host of the Boulder Comedy Show and is a regular performer at Denver’s own Comedy Works Comedy Club. She’s delightful. Thank you for your support!
