Hey Confab fans! We're back -- with a new season of stories, true as we can tell them.
This week, we have stories from our new co-hosts: Confabulation founder, Matt Goldberg and Montreal producer, Deb VanSlet! The stories explore the theme of Perspectives.
Matt's story is from our October 2018 show, Awakenings; recorded at the Phi Centre, Montreal, QC.
Matt Goldberg is a Montreal-based comedian, writer, actor and storyteller, as well as a founder and featured performer with Uncalled For -- an award-winning Canadian sketch and improv comedy troupe, based in Montreal and Toronto.
He is also the founder and executive director of Confabulation -- a non-profit, dedicated to the art of true life storytelling, and has been the host of the Montreal Confabulation since its founding in 2010.
Matt hosts the Confabulation podcast, and has performed at Fringe Festivals and storytelling shows across Canada, as well as at special events with Centre Phi, CBC Books and Just for Laughs. He currently teaches English literature and storytelling at Vanier College, in Montreal.
Deb's story is from our January 2019 show, Rites of Passage; recorded at the Centaur Theatre, Montreal, QC.

She launched her media art career in the late 1980s with Sick World, a performance art video series. Her films How to Spot an Anorexic, Weather Permitting, Link, Twitch and Rules of the Road explore storytelling, performance and dance and have screened at festivals, and on airplanes, around the world.
For sixteen years, Deb produced and hosted Dykes on Mykes, a radio show at CKUT 90,3 FM.
