Podcast: A story we can’t get ogre

Hear the audio rendition of our September report from Madison’s fifth annual Shrekfest.

Back in September, I let myself get talked into covering something that was never supposed to happen and that I didn’t really want to do. I’m talking about Shrekfest, which began life as an online gag, but, long story short, turned into a real event, celebrating all things Shrek. I went to the fifth annual Shrekfest and wrote about it for Tone Madison and our friends at Milwaukee Record. This week we bring you that story in audio form, read aloud by Tone Madison‘s Chris Lay.
