This week on Addressing Alaskans we’ll be listening to stories from Arctic Entries, a live show that took place on January 12 at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. In the spirit of This American Life, The Moth, and other storytelling events, Arctic Entries brings Alaskans to the stage to share their personal stories: funny, sad and sweet. At every performance, seven people each tell a seven-minute long true story about themselves relating to the show’s theme. This time around we’ll hear stories about a tourist trap, a rooster named Fred, pepper spray, fish, and walks in the wild.

- Marty Hannah – A Rooster Named Fred and a Bag of Kittens
