#31 - Colin Matty (Brother Bedtime)
Mar 07, 2021 Season 2
Griffin Cork, Karen Johnson-Diamond & Colin Matty

Welcome to Season 2 of The Breakfast Dish! Dance, music, visual art, theatre and get-to-know-you conversations with the artists behind the work. Join Griffin Cork and his mom, Karen Johnson-Diamond every Monday morning as they meet the creators of today's digital offerings. This podcast is dairy and gluten free!

This week, Karen and Griffin chat with Colin Matty! Colin is a poet, actor, and storyteller from Edmonton. A founding member of the poetry brothel, alumni of Rapid Fire Theatre, and company member of Malachite Theatre, he works with the Writers Guild of Alberta as the director of WordsWorth and Drink the Wild Air, two creative writing residencies for youth. Colin broadcasts nightly bedtime stories at and is the curator of Edmonton’s iconic Poem Shop, where he writes poetry on the spot for strangers-cum-patrons with the help of his 1954 Underwood typewriter, Ol' Faithful. He's been in a bunch of festivals locally and abroad and won a few awards along the way, which he says is "okay by him".
