Hey everybody, I’m Greg Sowell and this is Why Am I, a podcast where I talk to interesting people and try to trace a path to where they find themselves today. My guest this go around is Thom Britton from Freakshow & Tell. I’m not quite sure, but I think he may have sold me white gloves and a ketchup popsicle to go with them LOL. He traveled with a freakshow at 16 where he learned not only to “talk” and “turn”, how to eat fire, and swallow swords, but also had some grizzled old men teach him how to dress nice, tie a time, and talk to girls. It sounds like this kid from nowhere found a community. He went on to create a unique show blending freak show with science, and using it as a vehicle to show folks a piece of his soul, to share who and why he is. I hope you enjoy this chat with Thom.
