Courtney Hameister narrates this engaging, insightful, and at times hilarious account of her Okay Fine Whatever project, in which she grapples with her anxiety by deliberately exposing herself to uncomfortable new situations. Whether she's trying drugs with co-workers to unleash her creativity, undergoing a Brazilian wax, or participating in online dating, her perceptions of events are sharp and funny. She's especially good at capturing her own anxiety-driven inner monologues during awkward circumstances such as a first sexual encounter and is often laugh-out-loud funny. A former NPR host, Hameister is a terrific narrator--she gets comic timing and tone fully. This production will entertain diverse listeners and make fellow anxious people pat themselves on the back for their own moments of unsung bravery when facing down what makes them nervous. J.C.G.
