After a little break for a month, Free Speech was back for September and ready to rumble. Fate stepped in for the evening as we heard 6 stories from some seriously phenomenal folks. Is it kismet, or coincidence? Karma, or divine intervention? We got to hear a little bit from all sides.

The audience listened (with GET IT, GIRL wine in hand) as our storytellers took to the mic to spit some truth. Sit back, relax, and enjoy these kindred stories of KISMET.
