No Matter What
stories from the stage

Sometimes we'd rather avoid stepping into the fray. But when we choose to be courageous, the consequences are life changing. Susanne Schmidt tries "extreme camping" and learns about love, friendship and the virtues of a well-built campfire; Jose Palma embarks on a perilous journey to reach the U.S. and the possibility of a brighter future; and Annemarie Whilton learns that letting go is not the same as giving up. Three storytellers, three interpretations of NO MATTER WHAT, hosted by Theresa Okokon.

Episode Duration: 26 minutes and 40 seconds

Episode Number: 216
