We here at Mamalode get to go to lots of events and meet some remarkable people—we want to make sure our Mamaloders get to know them too. We are starting a series called “Mamalode Asks” where we take the opportunity to ask some questions, get some answers and start introducing all of our amazing readers to all of our amazing friends until you all wind up mixed together into a big old pile of amazing Mamalode mush.

This first series is based around four questions and filmed at a writing retreat in the Pacific Northwest called Write Doe Bay (and yes, the Doe Bay Resort is that beautiful…you should go there and take your family.)

We got some stellar answers from some folks you might know, and some you might want to start following. These are some terrific folks.

1. What does storytelling mean to you?

2. What is the gutsiest thing you have ever done?

3. If you could back 10 years—What would you tell yourself?

4. Who is your celebrity crush?

Here is the entire video:

Tell us in the comments about other questions you want us to ask in these events. We love your ideas!
