Arctic Entries

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. Local musicians perform a few songs as well. Season 9's shows and themes:

  • September 12 - Up, Up, and Away: Stories of Breaking Trail, Taking Risks, and Leaving it All Behind
  • October 3 - Fingers Crossed: Stories of Superstition, Mischief, and Hoping for the Best
  • November 14 - Treat Yo’ Self: Stories of Guilty Pleasures, Self-Improvement, and Over-Indulgence
  • December 5 - In the Dark: Stories of Hiding Out, Getting Hoodwinked, and Burning the Midnight Oil
  • January 16 - The Fierce Urgency of Now: Stories of Protest, Disruption, and the Struggle for Equality
  • February 22 - Under the Influence: Stories of Mad Love, Losing Control, and Drinking the Kool-Aid
