S5E36: The Reviewers’ Revue

It’s closing weekend of Where the Wild things Fringe, and Fawnda is joined by a panel of writers from Beer Tent Reviews to discuss highlights, lowlights, and happenings at this year’s festival grounds. Their discussion includes: holdovers, Sterling Award bets, star-rating bell curves, classics vs. new works, audience participation issues, and other monsters. It’s a DOOZIE. Enjoy!

Special thanks to our guests:
